“We’re teaching students to grow healthy food in state-of-the-art vertical farming units that will go to nourish our neighbors in need,” the Beep explained.
“We are so excited to be working with innovators like Borough President Adams and the students at Brooklyn Democracy Academy who are empowering the next generation of farmers,” said Shearer.
“This is a really great opportunity for our students,” said Academy principal Dez-Ann Romain.
The veggies grown will be distributed to senior centers, New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) residents, and other community-based organizations on a regular basis for local families in need.
