BUSHWICK - On what used to be a vacant lot on Broadway, is now a recyclable-built city farm which offers chickens, vegetables and a sustainable garden for the community to enjoy.

Unlike other farms, this organic farm gives away free food and clothing to those who are in need. This includes free egg giveaways every Sunday.

All the food provided is either produced on site or donated by local businesses. The directors say they feel like they've been able to help others in the community live and eat a little better at the same time.
