BEST URBAN FARM WHERE A FARM IS NEEDED

Bed-Stuy Farm

But you don’t need your own churchtop to start a garden — just
a little empty space. The Brooklyn Rescue Mission, already doing great
work as a food pantry in underserved Bed-Stuy, has converted a vacant
lot behind its headquarters into the Bed-Stuy Farm. Now, they’re
participating in Farmer’s Markets, distributing local produce, even
facilitating the neighborhood’s Community Supported Agriculture group.
Now that’s a project it’s hard to get cynical about.

  • Time’s Up rocks! I personally volunteer with this group and it’s amazing how much they get done with only volunteers and a very small budget. You can truly see the positive changes all over the city. Time’s Up definitely deserves this award after all of it’s long hard work and it’s nice to see they are finally being recognized. Thank you Time’s Up for making my New York City a more environmentally friendly place.
