On November 18th, the Bushwick Campus Farm officially opened with a ribbon cutting celebration. The project, pictured in an earlier post, is a joint effort between the Academy of Urban Planning, Ecostation:NY and Boswyck Farms.
Faculty, staff and students from the Bushwick High School Campus who have been working on the project were out in full force, celebrating the beginning of the farm and also the culmination of service week at the school. Event highlights included delicious food made by Sean-Michael Fleming of Ecostation:NY and a performance by the African drumming group inside the hoop house. Some students even got to sign their names on the hoop house wall.
Now, Boswyck Farms and Ecostation: NY are fundraising via Kickstarter campaign to raise the money to support the project through the next year- filling the greenhouse up with everything it needs (including hydroponic systems!) The goal is $15,000 by December 30th.
