Red Hook farm is an urban farm that covers around three acres of land, across from Ikea. It grows organic fruit and vegetables. It is a serene and calm atmosphere where you instantly feel better by just looking at it.

Red Hook Farm has given the community many positive opportunities with three initiatives:

1. Growing a just food system: improving the community’s access to healthy affordable food and creating local economic growth and jobs.

2. Youth empowerment: allowing teens to positively engage with the community and giving them leadership and agriculture skills.

3. Farm Based Learning: The elementary schools in the neighborhood participate in weekly lessons that branch out into different concepts. Fields trips are also done for schools around New York City.
