The Urban Farm at Havemeyer Park

Last Saturday we partnered our friends at El Puente to do a healthy living cooking demonstration at the Southside Connex Street Festival. Chef Emma prepared a deliciously-fresh bruschetta made from ingredients picked that morning on the farm. We love our neighborhood! 

Our first Sunday Supper with Greenpointers was a beautiful evening with Chef Emma Gonzalez, who created some delicious food during the golden hour on the farm. Diners participated in the harvest of red romaine lettuce heads for a seriously fresh food experience. 

Menu

Delicate Green Pea Soup, Mint, Rosewater
Grilled Cornbread, BBQ Adzuki Beans, Greens
Grilled Red Romaine Lettuce, Cashew Cream Dressing
Fruit Parfait, Almond Cream, Balsamic Reduction
Sailor Jerry Rum Purple Basil Mint Mojito

On August 3, Kickstarter held its 3rd annual film festival at Havemeyer park. The event drew a crowd of close to 500 people. North Brooklyn Farms had many visitors who toured the farm and bought some farm stand snacks.

Last night, Slow Food NYC hosted 40 teachers and educators at North Brooklyn Farms. The event opened up a discussion about what resources teachers need in order to start and continue their school gardens. Despite the drizzle, everyone made it and had a great time.
