How & where to get involved

Project EATS has exciting plans for 2019!

We have expanded our farm network to two new rooftop farms on the Lower East Side and the Bronx.

We are building climate-controlled greenhouses to extend our season and ability to provide fresh and local produce to our communities.

We are expanding our Farmacy program, offering more frequent opportunities to welcome local residents to our activities, and expanding our workforce development programs. 

There are many ways to participate in Project EATS – ranging from becoming a farmer trainee or attending one of our Saturday morning storytelling breakfasts in Brownsville! Please contact us if you have any questions, ideas, or just want to come by the farms sometime – our contact info is at the bottom of the page. You can learn all about our farms farther down the page as well – check them out and come visit us!
