Community Food Production | Community Food Access | Farm Based Education | Youth Development
We are an urban, educational farm located at the YMCA in Midtown Kingston, New York. We use organic growing methods to grow food for our immediate community. We sell our hyper local fruits and vegetables at farm stands in the lobby of the Y. We work with pre-schoolers through high-schoolers, bringing young people to the farm to get their hands dirty as they learn, work, explore and play on the farm. Our youth development program offers 14-18 year olds the opportunity to work on our farm, help run our farm stands and gain valuable employment experience while earning an hourly wage.
The Farm Project also hosts community work days and farm based events, providing opportunities for people of all ages to contribute to the farm.
The Farm is located behind the YMCA, across from River Radiology, near the intersection of Susan and Summer Streets.
Our Summer Youth Crew wrote and created a video called Truth Talk. As part of their summer experience, the youth read Stamped: A Remix by Jason Reynolds based on Ibram X. Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning. Truth Talk focuses on what they learned about our history and how to be an antiracist agent of change. Watch TRUTH TALK now.
Thursday Farm Stand runs through October 29th
Thursdays 3:30-6:00. Parking lot of the Y at 507 Broadway
You must wear a mask to the farm stand. Please respect social distancing guidelines. We are following guidelines for farm stands and farmer's markets. Produce will be selected for you. Please be patient with us as safety of our staff and customers is our priority.
