Many thanks go out to the fine folks at Pom Wonderful, who had a very productive service day at the Bushwick Campus Farm. In addition, they donated $2,000 towards building up infrastructure in the farm.
Green Thumb worked with EcoStationNY to make this all a reality. Pom brought in 20 energized employees, to get the work done. And a lot got done indeed.
3 compost bins
6 raised beds
and Moving lots of dirt!
Andrew Barnett from Grow to Learn did some weeding and planting with a group of student volunteers, taking some time at the end of regents to learn about horticulture.
After the work day, the Pom Wonderful crew had lunch at Woodbine Garden, prepared brilliantly by the EcoStationNY crew.
Pom Wonderful is a division of Roll Global, one of the largest private farming companies in the world, growing almonds, pistachios, and citrus. We on the Bushwick Green Team are thankful for the intro, and hope to work with them again on other projects.
