EBT Screening/Ice Cream Making at Saturday’s Greenmarket

by Pamela Boyle on

This Saturday at Greenpoint/McCarren Park’s Greenmarket, Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council will be screening for EBT from 9am – 1pm. Please come by if you would like to be screened for EBT or would like to learn more.

We will be celebrating Dairy Month by making our own ice cream from Ronnybrook’s delicious milk. We’ll need the help of energetic kids and adults alike to shake the mix into ice cream, and then we’ll all reap the rewards together. The demo will be happening between 10am and 12pm. If you miss it, don’t worry, you can get your share of delicious dairy from both Ronnybrook and Consider Bardwell all day.

Textile and compost drop off is available every Saturday from 8am – 2pm.

The market is located at Union Ave btwn Driggs & N 12th Street
Open Saturdays, year-round, 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

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.
