Broadway Stages offers healthy and convenient food options grown right here in Brooklyn! Our Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, the very first of its kind, was a revolutionary step in bringing urban farming to the New York metro area brought forth by Broadway Stages President Gina Argento and founder Tony Argento. Our commitment to source locally led us to develop and create our very own and New York City's first urban farm in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
The idea behind bringing an urban farm to Brooklynites was to allow local residents to actually see where their food was coming from. Broadway Stages wanted to offer our consumers the transparency and security that people can trust in their foods. We use urban farming techniques that do not utilize harmful chemicals and welcome visitors to come and participate.
Our rooftop farm brings awareness to the need to keep green spaces in New York City. Broadway Stages believes that conversions of more rooftops into green spaces are vital in keeping the greenscape of New York City alive. Green rooftops can help combat air pollution, preserve wildlife, and grow organic foods!
Brooklynites are welcome to join us Sunday afternoon to actively participate in growing their very own vegetables and learn about the urban growing process. Every Sunday afternoon visitors can expect to learn earth-friendly tips and how to add greenery to their homes. Stop by our Rooftop Farms and get your head start on NYC Green!
