RMM is a founding partner and host of the Hell’s Kitchen Farm Project, which works toward food justice in our community. First organized in the fall of 2010, the project is a collaboration of Metro and RMM, Clinton Housing Development Corporation and MCCNY Charities.
Our primary initial project has been the development of a small scale urban farm. In June 2011, planting began on the roof of our building. Made possible by a grant from the United Way of New York City, in its first year the rooftop farm helped to stock area food pantries with healthy produce while providing a forum for community building and education. In 2012, we increased our production while further developing our community involvement. We're growing much more than food up on the roof!
