New Youth Interns on the Bed-Stuy Farm

Hydroponics Mid-Season
Hydroponics Mid-Season

It's December at the Bed-Stuy Farm and our extended season growing is coming to an end. We are harvesting the last of our tomatoes and peppers while planning for next years growing season. We have 4 new youth farmers this winter and have jumped right into the work of cleaning the hydroponic system. We are taking advantage of the 60 degree weather this past week and emptied the water from our hydroponic system being careful to use it to water our evergreen plants, compost and worms. The new farmers are just learning the basics but they will soon be up to speed on all of our farm duties including working with the worms, caring for the chickens and working with the hydroponic system.
