Growing a Healthier Kingston

 

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.  

Winter Farm Stand runs Thursdays 3:30-6:00 November-February

In partnership with the Hudson Valley Farm Hub, we are proud to host a winter farm stand for the second year! Farm Hub grows beautiful greens, delicate salad greens, hearty carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and more!

Find us in the lobby of the Y every Thursday except 11/28, 12/26 and 1/2.
