Free Farms Sprouting in Bushwick


The 9,000-square-foot lot at the corner of Stockton Street and Lewis Avenue in Bushwick has sat abandoned for the last three decades, but in recent months it’s been getting made over into a public farm that promises to offer free vegetables to neighborhood residents, according to BushwickBK.com. The project has been led by a group called Bushwick City Farm that is undertaking similar projects in a number of vacant lots in the area. (The Broadway Farm, for example, is already producing an ample supply of fresh eggs.) Organizers are hoping to open in the fall, but still have another $2,500 to go on their Kickstarter campaign.
