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:
"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." ~ Travis Frazelle, Farm School NYC Student
Chris Bolden Newsome, Farm School NYC’s Crop Management co-teacher, comes from a family with deep roots in farming. “Growing food goes back at least 400 years before me,” says Chris. “We always kept that connection alive.”
Our faculty are at the forefront of urban agriculture and are experts in a wide range of topics from social justice issues, to urban planting techniques, to grassroots community organizing. They run some of the most well-regarded urban farms and gardens in our region, and their approach to teaching is grounded in experiential learning and popular education.
