Spring 2009

In partnership with Help USA's New Horizons facility and Teachers Preparatory Academy, the Amboy Community Farm was Project EATS' first farm, launched in the spring of 2009. Located on the corner of Amboy & Blake in Brownsville, Amboy is the larger of two PE farms currently operating in this neighborhood network. The site is used as a production and training site, supplying produce for both its own farm stand and the farm stand at the Brooklyn Museum. Amboy hosts a weekly PE community farm stand in Saturdays from June through November.

In a collaboration with Brooklyn Woods and The New School, PE built a second beautiful and functional shed for storing tools and market supplies at Amboy, after the first was built at the Frederick Douglass Houses. Additionally, as part of the organization's People's Power Hub project, a social and exercise space is being developed in the Amboy garden to generate electricity that will be used to power farm equipment and offering resources for community residents to get exercise, providing opportunities for them to have more healthy lifestyles.
