Red Hook Farms, a project of Red Hook Initiative
Red Hook Farms is a youth-centered urban farming and food justice program in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Formerly known as Added Value, we became a project of Red Hook Initiative in November 2018. We create opportunities for teens to expand their knowledge base, develop their leadership skills, and positively engage with each other, their community, and the environment. We operate two urban farm sites, and our programs include a teen farm apprenticeship, three weekly farm stands, a CSA, and a school workshop program. Since 2001, we have strived to improve access to healthy, affordable produce, while nurturing a new generation of green leaders.
