The rooftop farm is finally enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation. It was an amazing season and we were able to pull out over 1,000 pounds of produce for the tenants and neighbors of Intervale Green.

I want to thank all the tenant farmers, all the WHEDco employees, and all the volunteer groups that helped us throughout the season.

Thanks to the enthusiastic crew from St. John’s University!IMG_1821 IMG_1823

With the help of the volunteer groups, we were able to clear all the plots, plant bulbs and garlic, and sow cover crops. I encourage all the volunteer groups to come back and help us with our pre-season set-up and to kick off our planting season.  In the meantime, the Intervale Green Greenhouse will be in full operation. Updates and Greenhouse news will be out shortly so stay tuned!
