From our organizers:
As we look ahead at our 10th Anniversary year (2019!), we aim to lay important groundwork by honoring the soil and the land that has given so much to our community.
The Youth Farm is a 1-acre educational farm located on the grounds of the Wingate Campus in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Since 2009, our mission has been to grow fresh, culturally relevant, nutritious food and to cultivate a restorative and educational green space for all the members of our Crown Heights/East Flatbush community.
Our interpretation of this familiar theme is to lift up and celebrate — even inhabit (for the night!) — the magical world of soil and the surrounding ecosystem that influences it and conspires with it to produce the infinite medicinal and culinary delights we savor and depend on for sustenance!
Beloved Brooklyn chef Arden Lewis and the whole team at Purslane join us for a second year in a row, and have crafted a soil-to-plate menu as diverse as the soil community itself.
You will be transported through Chef Arden’s delectable bites and delightful sounds atop the world’s largest rooftop farm. We will also have a fantastic raffle with lots of great prizes! We hope you’ll join us!
