A NEW FARM IN MIDTOWN KINGSTON
Great things are growing at the Kingston YMCA Farm Project! The quarter acre farm organically grows fruits and vegetables from arugula to zucchini. The Farm is a place of education and community food production. Young people in the Y's after school programs and Camp Starfish work in the garden, learning first hand how to grow food. In partnership with Family of Woodstock, the Dig Kids, an urban gardening program for youth, is working on the farm at our farm stand. Pre-scool aged children are invited to Little Farmers, where we read garden stories, work in the garden, and make a farm snack. The Farm Project also hosts community work days and farm based events, providing opportunities for people of all ages to contribute to the farm. We have two farm stands, a bike powered mobile market and a stationary stand in the lobby of the YMCA. We accept SNAP and WIC and Department of the Aging FMNP checks.
