It’s seed season!

Follow the links to order your seeds directly to your home or garden. We are going to pick some up for our summer campers, as we teach them how to grow vegetables, flowers and fruit from seeds.

They have big plans for the future of urban farming and have expanded their rooftop farm vision to another location in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, many congratulations to all of your hard work and dedication!
