A Farm Flourishes Off Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights

From the Queens Ledger:

The other remarkable thing about this particular garden is that it sits right above a subway station, which is titled after a distinct, but nearby garden: it's the Brooklyn Botanical Garden stop on the shuttle train which connects Crown Heights and Bedford-Stuyvesant.


According to the article the farm grows "peas, corn, bush beans, broccoli, grapes, collard greens, cabbage, beets, sunflowers, peppers (bell and hot), okra, mint, sunflowers, carrots, basil, cilantro, thyme, butter beans, green onions, zucchini, squash, and strawberries."

So do they sell that produce? Is there a farmstand? I love seeing gardens in city environments.

I want peas, corn, bush beans, broccoli, collard greens, beets, bell peppers, okra and zucchini. Forget Fire Island. Lets stay in and cook.
