We were fortunate to have volunteers from New York Cares come up and help get the rooftop farm ready for fall. Gina, Nana, Thuy, Carina, Justin, and Kiah worked tirelessly in the August heat to ensure the farm continues to produce well into the colder months. We weeded, cleared some space, and planted fall crops.

We planted the second round of arugula, carrots, peas, and transplanted cabbage and kale.

We’re not giving up on our late summer crops, even if it is September. The heat continues and the plants keep producing. The okra is about to explode with delicious pods and the strawberries are giving us their last hurrah!

And the rooftop tomatoes are nowhere near done!
