Any New York City Greenhorns out there?  This is a terrific project.

We are a group of food justice and urban agriculture activists working to ensure that people of all walks of life have access to fresh, nutritious, and environmentally-sound food. as part of this mission, we run a CSA (community supported agriculture group) in the Lower East Side, and are pursuing several urban ag initiatives including rooftop and backyard gardens, and ultimately an upstate CNG farm. we believe in reconnecting people with their food sources, empowering them through their eating decisions and ability to grow food, and improving the health of all people of NYC. we support local and sustainable agriculture both within and outside of the city.

we are resolutely opposed to any form of racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and hold ourselves in opposition to capitalism and all other forms of oppression. we believe in an egalitarian and ecological society and culture, and the actualization of that through our works and through solidarity with other radical organizations and activists around the world.

if you’re interested in joining the CSA, receiving information about our upcoming projects, or have any ideas and general comments, please email nycfoodproject@riseup.net.
