10:00am — 3:00pm

Red Hook Farms is a youth-­centered urban farming and food justice program in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We create opportunities for teens to expand their knowledge base, develop their leadership skills, and positively engage with each other, their community, and the environment. We operate two urban farm sites, and our programs include a teen farm apprenticeship, three weekly farm stands, a CSA, and a school workshop program. Since 2001, we have strived to transform vacant lands into vibrant urban farms, improve access to healthy, affordable produce, and nurture a new generation of green leaders.

Visitors will get a guided tour of our 2.75 acre urban farm and composting program led by our Youth Farmers. The tour will show guests how we grow over 20,000 pounds of produce annually, an intro to how compost is made, and a visit to our chickens. Visitors will learn about how to get involved in our programs, and have the opportunity to purchase produce from our weekly farm stand.

This is a working farm; please wear closed-toe shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty!

Tours of the farm led by Youth Farmers will take place at 10:00am, 11:00am, and 12:00pm.
