Spring is in the air!


Ok that might be a stretch since our rooftop farm is covered in 7 inches of snow, but nevertheless we are in a SPRING state of mind!  In just over a month, HKFP will launch our 7th growing season.  There are lots of ways for you to be involved with HKFP this year as a volunteer, a youth intern or through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).  Read below for some exciting opportunities.  But first, mark your calendars for the:
HKFP Spring Kick-Off
Saturday, April 22
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Rooftop of Metro Baptist Church*

Our rooftop farm will be open to the public, and people of all ages are welcome to join us for farm tours, planting, kids activities and refreshments.  Come learn more about our work in the wider Hell’s Kitchen community and how you can get involved this season.
* Please note that our rooftop farm is accessible by stairs only.
Youth Farm Internship Program
July 5 - August 18
NYC high school students are encouraged to apply for the HKFP summer intern program.  8-10 interns will participate in this six week program that offers youth hands-on urban agriculture experience coupled with food justice education.  All applications are due by

CSA
May 31 - October 25
Once again this year, HKFP will host a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, where anyone can receive a weekly or bi-monthly share of fresh vegetable delivered to midtown Manhattan from our partner farmer in New Jersey at Nolasco Farms.  A full member share gets you 22 weeks of fresh, local vegetable; and a half share gets you 11 weeks of vegetables.  Flower shares are also available.
