Hell's Kitchen Farm Project

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!

Hell's Kitchen CSA

HKFP has also organized a neighborhood CSA (Community Support Agriculture), partnering with R & R Produce in Goshen, NY, through Grow NYC's New Farmer Development Project.  The CSA is a great way to buy fresh produce from a local farmer.  CSA members assist the farmer by paying in advance for a seasonal share of the farm’s products, and in return receive a weekly share of products directly from the farm all season long.

It’s fresh and delicious! Unlike the vegetables you get in the grocery store, the produce CSA members get is almost always picked the same day it is delivered.  More information on this year's CSA can be found here.
