It's part of an effort to increase self-sufficiency and healthy eating to the community. Their a 501c non-profit, looking for either donations or volunteers. I'm thinking of using my excess free time to get down and dirty with them in the garden. What say you?
Here's their mission from their website:
BRM promotes healthy living and neighborhood revitalization for Central Brooklyn residents through, an innovative sustainable food system, with a focus on families and youth.
BRM envisions urban farming as the starting point for a self-reliance movement, empowering neighborhood residents to take ownership of their own food supply, nutrition and neighborhood revitalization. BRM endeavors to build community pride, provide healthy provisions to its neediest residents, encourage youth entrepreneurship and develop a communal culture towards land use and community health through an innovative sustainable food system.
