NYCHA farm helps feed Brownsville tenants
A New York City Housing Authority farm in Brownsville has helped feed tenants of the Howard Houses for about a year now.
It's the second of its kind in Brooklyn, after one in Red Hook that opened in 2012.
At the farm, you'll find NYCHA residents growing kale, onions, tomatoes, squash, spinach and other food -- all mostly vegetables.
Josh Owens, a 24-year-old NYCHA resident and farmer, says the experience has been life-changing.
The organization behind the farm is currently recruiting for additional help.
