Farm interns maintain the food growth system


This Spring, nine of our farm interns learn how to maintain our hydroponic food system in an April workshop taught by MPS Consulting. Our farm interns cleaned and sanitized the grow bed and styrofoam rafts making room for our new seedlings to be planted in the hydroponic system. The interns learned how to take apart the food system and rebuild or replace worn out parts. The farm interns also planted seeds in the growing medium to ensure that we have continuous food ready for the Brooklyn Rescue Mission food pantry. This week the youth will harvest Swiss Chard and Kale for distribution at the pantry, we are also keeping a close watch on our tomatoes which has alread begun fruiting.
