Want to Grow Your Own Food?

Interested in growing food outside your home or in your neighborhood in the City of Kingston this season? We can help!

The Kingston YMCA Farm Project, Hudson Valley Farm Hub, Hudson Valley Seed Co, and Kingston Land Trust are offering materials, labor, and guidance to support folks in the City of Kingston to create raised-bed gardens outside of their homes or in their neighborhoods.

We have the ability to install a garden bed at 20 residential locations in the City of Kingston in 2020. With limited resources available, we are prioritizing low income, elderly, disabled / people with disabilities or chronic illness, migrant, refugee, Black, Indigenous, or People of Color, families with children, women, and trans* non-binary folks.
