FOOD

FOOD is an environmental art project with artist, architect and youth leadership. Through free art, architecture, and garden design sessions we create new gardens, improve existing growing environments, and create access to fresh healthy food with youth leadership. We are working in low income neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan, the North Shore of Staten Island, Crown Heights Brooklyn, Fort Greene Brooklyn, Jamaica, Queens, and the South Bronx.

Food related art communicates with the community to expand the impact of these gardens. We are changing menus of free public food programs in each of these five zones to incorporate fresh food grown in NYC gardens and local farms.  We hold free public events involving the community in designing, growing, cooking, and reimagining food systems.
