About BK Farmyards

bk farmyards is a Brooklyn based decentralized farming network providing local food to reduce the city’s reliance on fossil fuels and offering local jobs to boost the economy. We are seeking partnerships with developers willing to temporarily transform their idle land to farmyard; homeowners who want to eat from their own yard; and city agencies holding under-utilized land. Our strategy is to stay nimble, growing food between the cracks of urban development. bk farmyards mission is to bring communities together around the dinner table: our educational agenda includes eating seasonally, growing food locally, storing and preparing food, species biodiversity, and food democracy. We aim to build a local food network that enhances the health of our culture, our people, and our environment. BK Farmyard reconnects farmers and consumers as co-producers of the foodscape. The strategy transforms private yards into farms and inserts neighborhood dinner party structures for the celebration of food. Residents pay for organic yard-farming and produce delivered to their doors; others without yards pay for produce cultivated in these farmyards.
