Justin Green at Build it Green
The appropriately named Justin Green is the main man behind wonderfully sprawling non-profit salvage warehouse Build it Green.

  • All food produced at Bushwick City Farm is free to the community. It is distributed at the garden on a first come/first serve basis to those in need, we NEVER exchange food for volunteer work or donations! We also have free clothing & educational programs. All materials used to build the farm are reycled from dumpsters, nothing is ever sold or exchanged, our volunteers do not recieve food in exchange for their labor (thats why they are called volunteers).
