Join the Urban Farms team for our first live broadcast of 2022!
When: Friday, January 21, at 12 PM
We’ll take you inside the planting planning for the new season, as well as showcase some of our winter programs and initiatives, including season extension practices and our off-season food security and nutrition work.
S:US operates one of the largest urban agriculture initiatives in NYC. With more than 50 urban farms in the yards and on rooftops of our supported housing sites, the Urban Farms initiative employs many of the people we serve who have intellectual/developmental disabilities and engages 500+ people at the highest risk for homelessness, unemployment, and untreated medical, psychiatric and substance use disorders. Participants gain employable skills, generate income, build self-esteem, and learn about and enjoy the nourishing benefits of eating fresh produce.
