Bed-Stuy Farm

In 2005, BRMUHC created partnerships with the New York City environmental and food justice organizations to break ground on an abandoned lot behind the Mission in order to grow fruits and vegetables for pantry recipients. Once a neighborhood garbage dump, the site was transformed into an urban oasis that has served thousands of people since its creation. The farm has become a community gathering space and a classroom to teach neighborhood youth about food growing and community service.

The Healing Garden project is a community outreach of the Bed-Stuy Farm that provides culturally relevant mental health wellness and healing supports to help community members process, make meaning of, and/or heal from the traumatic impacts of oppression.
