A New Kind of Community Garden
Vinny Olsen and Masha Radzinsky started by finding a plot of land under an elevated subway that was going unused. With no permissions, the twosome forged Bushwick City Farms on the spot.
Rachel Signer at The Christian Science Monitor writes that the duo "are determined to reinvent the notion of a community garden by involving residents in the day-to-day operations of their urban farm, including maintaining the harvest, feeding the chickens, and composting."
"Using almost exclusively repurposed castaway materials, they worked side-by-side with locals over the course of three years to build a chicken coup, composting bin, and vegetable bed."
