Check out the summer market and volunteer day on Saturday, July 27, from 1 - 4 p.m., at the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, located at 44 Eagle Street, Brooklyn 11222. At the market, you can find hot peppers, leafy greens, carrots, herbs and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to support a local organic vegetable green roof turned farm! A Goode Green project owned by Broadway Stages, the farm is an example of how we support successful urban agriculture projects that support environmental sustainability. This not only benefits our neighbors by providing fresh produce for local residents and restaurants, but also makes a positive environmental impact by improving the air, making buildings more temperate and reducing storm water runoff.
The farm also provides an opportunity for local residents to broaden their environmental education and become urban farmers through a volunteer training program. The volunteers come out each week to work in the clean soil, learning how to grow food and design urban farms including gardens that support the critical habitat of pollinators. Take a look at the photo gallery to see for yourself what’s growing on our rooftop.
