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.

On this day 50 years ago, 20 million people across the country joined together to fight for a better future for our environment in what became the first Earth Day. The Council on the Environment of New York City (CENYC), now GrowNYC, was born out of the spirit of that day in 1970.
