Bushwick Campus
Farm & Greenhouse

Founded in Spring 2011 with the 1500 students and staff of the four high schools of Bushwick Campus (Academy for Environmental Leadership, Bushwick School for Social Justice, Academy of Urban Planning, and Brooklyn School for Math and Research), Bushwick Campus Farm & Greenhouse is a dynamic model of urban agriculture education.


Bushwick Campus Farm serves not only as a living classroom for the Campus, but also as a shared community asset, serving as a demonstration site for Just Food's Farm School NYC (see video below), Make the Road NY's Youth Power Project's youth programs, model for other GrowNYC/Grow to Learn schools and "Garden to Café" site, and an increasingly popular destination for area schools, senior center visits, after-school programs, universitys (such as The New School), and summer camps.

Information about field trips and interactive tours of Bushwick Campus Farm, and about farm/garden consultations here.

In-class and after school programming: EcoStation works with dozens of teachers to connect standards-based lessons to engaging hands-on experiential learning during school hours.

EcoStation co-developed three year-round urban farming courses for the freshmen of Academy of Environmental Leadership, reaching 90 students, and leads the campus-wide Food Justice Team and Youth Food Policy Council after-school student groups.
