I hope everyone stayed safe during the hurricane this week. The majority of our farmers were fortunate to not have serious damage in this past week’s storm, and Greenpoint/McCarren Park Greenmarket will be OPEN this Saturday. However, there will be no textile recycling or compost collection. Please help us spread the word to our community members!
We are updating the following websites daily if you would like to keep abreast of Greenmarket news:
Please come out this Saturday – our local farmers need our support!
A native New Yorker, Pam Boyle spent most of her college and post-college years pursuing a career in translation. The Spanish language, plus a growing interest to learn more about farming, led her to a family-run farm in the mountains of Costa Rica where she worked and learned the basics of maintaing a small-scale sustainable farm. Once back in Brooklyn, she was eager to learn more about the local farming communities in the tri-state area and to try out some of the farming techniques in her rooftop vegetable garden. She is very excited to be working with Greenmarkets, spending her Saturdays at Grand Army Plaza with the farmers and helping the community gain access to fresh, local food.
