A Farm Grows in Bushwick

There are many great projects on Kickstarter, but the Bushwick Campus Greenhouse is particularly awesome. The goal of the recently-founded Bushwick Campus Farm is to help students connect the dots between the food system, economics, health, the environment, social justice, and sustainable agricultural practices. They've already broken ground on the greenhouse which will be a hands on teaching space and they need funds to help complete the project...

So far they have just over $3,000 of their $15,000 goal. The way that Kickstarter works is all or nothing--if they don't receive pledges for the full amount of funding they won't get anything. $15,0000 will allow them to complete the project and additional funds raised beyond their goal will go towards developing their summer Food Justice Program at Bushwick Campus Farm and Bushwick Farmers’ Market and allow them to pay the students for their work. If you're looking for a gift for someone who has everything and doesn't need another tschotske, perhaps you might consider making a donation in their honor.
