Who We Are
The mission of the East New York Farms Project is to organize youth and adults to address food justice in our community by promoting local sustainable agriculture and community-led economic development. East New York Farms! is a project of the United Community Centers in partnership with local residents.

Take the #3 train to Van Siclen Avenue. After exiting through the turnstyles, take the stairs to the right. At the bottom of the stairs continue walking straight, you will be on Van Siclen Avenue. At the corner, take a left onto New Lots Avenue and walk two blocks to the corner of New Lots and Schenck Avenues.
