Volunteer Days at Urban Harvest Garden

26 Apr

Come join Farmer Nora and Slow Food NYC supporters to help develop their newest school garden out in Brownsville, Brooklyn. No experience necessary, but if you have construction, carpentry, or farming experience, it would be a huge help to have you join!
What to Bring: Water, lunch, safety glasses, gloves, sturdy shoes and any tools you can donate for us to use for the day (anything from power tools to a shovel). Be prepared to sign a liability waiver before you dig in.

Dates: April 28, 29; May 5, 6, 12,13, 19, 20

Time: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Location: PS 323 Urban Harvest Garden – 514 Rockaway Avenue (3 to Rockaway Ave OR L to Sutter Ave); Brooklyn [Map]

RSVP: Write to Nora at npainten@gmail.com with the subject line “Brownsville Build” to sign up for what days you want to come work – people are welcome (encouraged!) to sign up for multiple days. Bring a group of friends, bring people from work or school. Let Nora know if you can bring tools, especially power tools, so we can make sure we have enough extension cords.

Slow Food NYC is the New York City chapter of Slow Food, a non-profit, member-supported organization founded in 1989 to counteract the culture of fast food. Slow Food stands against the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
