Team Grow's Green Gotham is still accepting volunteers (and dollars). We've gotten our project assignment, I'll just do a cut and paste from Alphabet's email:
Hi everyone! I have a few more details about the project now, which I hope will entice you to join. For those of you who have already signed up – thank you! Please use this information to recruit any friends you think might like to lend a hand ... be sure to sign up by this Friday, April 4, 2008.
The Project: We’ll be working on an Urban Farm in East New York. Yes, it’s crazy far out in Brooklyn, but it’s right off the 3 train and easy to get to. C’mon, channel that outer borough love! It’ll run from 9:30-3pm, and I’ll have more details from the site captain this week. This is a very cool project, especially if you’re at all interested in local/sustainable food.
The Goods: Free lunch, free T-Shirt, and an after-party with free booze sponsored by the Brooklyn Brewery! Oh, and free ego boost for doing something good for the community.
This is going to be a great project. Not only is the Urban Farm a great use of a former abandoned lot, the project promotes nutrition and local sustainable agriculture in the community. Here are some stories about the farm from last summer.
