GrowNYC Partners with Bronx Developers for Youth Farmstand

GrowNYC, in partnership with L+M Development Partners, Camber Property Group, MBD Community Housing Corp., and the Baychester Resident Association, launched its first youth-run farmstand today in the Eastchester neighborhood of the Northeast Bronx. The GrowNYC Farmstand program empowers young people to develop entrepreneurial skills.  
 
Elected officials joined representatives from GrowNYC and L+M Development Partners for the opening ceremony, which took place at the Farmstand’s permanent home at East 229th Street and Schieffelin Avenue.  
 
Through GrowNYC’s Farmstand program, young people sell fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms sourced through GrowNYC Wholesale, while learning about health, nutrition, the environment, and regional agriculture.  In addition to teaching participants about promotion, merchandising, and customer service skills, this Farmstand will increase the availability of fresh produce in the Eastchester neighborhood. 
 
The Eastchester Farmstand will be open to the public every Thursday through Nov. 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
