Far Rockaway, Queens
Founded in 2013

Edgemere Farm and Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger's Healing Garden at Far Rock Farm were built as part of the 2013 Gardens for Healthy Communities program within the Mayor's Obesity Task Force Initiative.

The 2 farms, which share a 1 acre lot, grow thousands of pounds of food in farm-style rows, run weekly farmstands, and provide local restaurants and food pantries with fresh produce.

Edgemere Farm has a website at www.edgemerefarm.org.
