Brooklyn teens learn to sow the seeds of hard work
Some Brooklyn teenagers are sowing the seeds of hard work as they intern at a East New York farm.
There are 21 paid interns working at the farm this summer. Some are returning and some are newcomers, but all are learning about responsibility. The teens are involved with everything from planting the seeds to selling at a market.
The produce is sold at the East New York Farmer?s Market on Lots Avenue. The program is organized by the United Community Center. The center calls the program a ?win-win? situation for the teens and the community.
Organizers say the farm is paid for by a combination of charitable donations and profits from the Farmer?s Market.
