Limited Capacity filling up

Meet at CDSC: 352 Classon Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238 at 1:30pm (G-Train - Classon Ave)

We will split into two groups of 10-15 people. The first group will go to Teens for Food Justice: 170 Gates Ave (7mins walk from CDSC). After 45 minutes, the two groups will switch. 

About the event:
Two non-profits in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant, using indoor hydroponic production to promote food equity. 

Teens for Food Justice empowers youth to find solutions for food deserts though education in the high-tech science and business principles of hydroponic farming.  TTFJ grow large quantities of produce inside their school, serve as health/nutrition ambassadors, and build movement for improved food justice.

The food pantry services of the Center for Child Development Support Corporation (CDSC) became interested in food production and wanted to provide patrons with healthy, clean produce.  Since 2012, CDSC has been efficiently operating a two-tiered, 3 rack shallow-raft system at their Classon Ave location. All food goes directly to feeding those in need.

CDSC: 352 Classon Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238 
TTFJ: 170 Gates Ave

Swap after a half-hour to 45 minutes.

You will be assigned a group the night before and notified by email.
