Overview

No votes yet

This garden contributes important green space and clean air to Brooklyn. By hosting a Community Support Agriculture (CSA) food distribution, the Red Shed also helps to bring locally grown, healthy food to the community. The garden hopes to expand on this relationship and help foster the development of a full-fledged farmer’s market in nearby Cooper Park. The Red Shed also functions an outdoor classroom for teaching local school children about nutrition and how food is grown.

Red Shed includes rainwater collection as part of our educational offerings, in addition to using it to water plants. The Red Shed gardeners use only organic gardening methods, and believe it is very important to both use and model such ecologically intelligent systems, especially when they are simple and relatively easy to replicate by other gardens and individuals.
