Three Friends from Brooklyn Raising Funds for Summer-long Farming Bicycle Trip

04/15/2010 9:39 AM |


Bright-eyed Brookly buddies Stephen, Christi, and Jess have kick-started a number of charitable projects related to sustainable agriculture and bike transportation, and their latest enterprise combines the two. This summer the trio will be biking across Europe from farm to farm, visiting 30 in all, working and learning agricultural practices from the South of France to Sweden along the way. They’ve alreay raised most of the funds they needed for the project, but donors will get a book documenting the whole journey, which they’ve dubbed Farmcycle. Whether or not you plan to donate, you should watch the cute stop-motion video of themselves biking over vegetable landscapes that they made for the project here. (NOTCOT.ORG)
