Bushwick City Farm is a space built by and for the community. It provides essential community resources (free healthy food in the middle of a food desert, a free community gathering space, a safe space for kids to play and learn, education about food, health, carpentry, animals, etc.)
These are resources that the city works hard and pays a lot of money to provide, and they don’t do it as well as we’re doing it.
Therefore, it is the city’s responsibility to step in and ensure that we can continue doing our work, by allowing us to stay in this lot.
The landlord wants to develop? This lot is already developed. It has been developed into a farm.
