Our Case Study

Over the years, a lot of people have asked us how East New York Farms! got started, and how we grew. We often give the short version, but we are excited, through our participation in the Food Dignity Project, to be able to share this Case Study that details our history from 1995-2011, and important lessons we learned along the way. 

East New York Farms! Alumni Intern Recognized

For stellar leadership, alumni intern Celeste Leandry won the Just Food McKinley Hightower-Beyah Award an award that honors a New York City youth who is committed to urban agriculture, community leadership and social justice.  

She first joined the Youth Internship in 2010 and has since dedicated herself in becoming a leader in the food justice movement both locally and nationally.  She continued in our Youth Internship for three more years expanding her leadership and even externing in 2013 with the Lower East Side Ecology Center.  She attended, presented and made East New York Farms! proud at the Rooted In Community (RIC) Conference several times over the past years and is a member of the RIC Advisory Council.  She also lead a workshop at the 2013 Black and Urban Gardeners Conference.

We would like to congratulate her and her for being awesome and hopes that she can continue to not be a role model for our youth but for a community facing food justice issues.
