Testimonial - Leonora Gerardi, Farm School NYC Student

Simply and practically Farm School NYC has changed my life and that of many people whom I know and whom believe it is time to get back to the basics of home-grown-foods and lifestyles. Farming has been and hopefully will always continue to be the lifeline of this country. We as a country have pioneered a food system that has served us well.

What our students have to say about Farm School NYC:
 

File 2128"Because of Farm School NYC, my concept of what can be done agriculturally in an urban environment has grown way beyond my personal needs for a place to grow food. Social justice, community strength, and perpetuating access to good food for everyone is now part of my forward thinking and long term goals as an urban farmer."
