Hurricane Sandy submerged our community farm and our neighborhood in several feed of sea water when it came ashore on October 29th, 2012. Added Value's Red Hook Farm grows more than just food. It catalyzes a Food Justice ecosystem in our community through youth empowerment programs. It ensures our neighborhood has access to healthy, affordable food.
If you believe in our mission, we need your help now more than ever. Here's how you can help:
Added Value is a non-profit organization promoting the sustainable development of Red Hook by nurturing a new generation of young leaders. We work towards this goal by creating opportunities for the youth of South Brooklyn to expand their knowledge base, develop new skills and positively engage with their community through the operation of a socially responsible urban farming enterprise.
