Added Value is a non-profit organization promoting the sustainable development of Red Hook by nurturing a new generation of young leaders. It works towards this goal by creating opportunities for the youth of South Brooklyn to expand their knowledge base, develop new skills and positively engage with their community through the operation of a socially responsible urban farming enterprise. Since opening their doors, Added Value has provided long-term training to more than 150 neighborhood teenagers between the ages of 14 and 19, provided hundreds of local elementary school students with educational programs, and worked thousands of volunteers to build a more just and sustainable future for all. Together, they have helped revitalize local parks, transformed vacant lands into vibrant Urban Farms, improved access to healthy, safe and affordable food, and begun to grow an economy that supports the needs of the community. Currently, Added Value has three main initiatives: Growing a Just Food System, Youth Empowerment, and Farm-Based Learning.
