In the span of just four short years, EcoStation:NY has initiated several major, innovative, interralated projects in Bushwick, Brooklyn, an area marked by poverty rates as high as 38% and soaring rates of diet-related, preventable illness.

We are addressing issues of sustainability, opening dialogue about the interconnectedness of human and environmental health, and the effects of our current food system upon both.

At Bushwick Campus Farm, EcoStation:NY is training the next generation of environmental and food justice leaders.

At Bushwick Farmers' Market, EcoStation:NY is connecting a community in need with fresh, local produce, and supporting the regional family farms that grow it.

At Farm-in-the-Sky, is EcoStation:NY is exploring traditional and experimental, low-cost and scalable "DIY" techniques – and NYC's last great frontier: rooftops.

For a closer look at what EcoStation does, we recommend reviewing our 2012 Year-in-Review2011 Year-in-Review and 2010 Year-in-Review.

Bushwick Farmers' Market Green Machine will be a storage,
