when touring east new york farms our host recommended we visit a project of bk farmyards that was in crown heights. i was game, while i don’t really know anything about the neighborhood of crown heights, i’m a fan of the band the crown heights affair, so seeing a urban farm in crown heights sounded great to me.
i don’t have a huge amount of commentary as we didn’t get to talk to anyone at the farm. we just hopped the fence and gave ourselves a tour. i’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
since i can’t really add that much content – i recommend checking out bk farmyards website.
strangely the week after this vist i noticed that we had a magnet at work for bk farmyards on our dry erase board. i think someone from the organization must have visited years ago, but i’d forgotten about it. glad i had a chance to see just a little of what they are up to. next time i’ll see if i can meet up with some of the folks behind all the work.
