Added Value is back and ready for the 2017 growing season! Help us welcome the new team: former intern Nefratia Coleman is back as our NYCHA Farmer, youth alum Becky Maldonado is on board as our CSA Coordinator, St. Francis college senior Ashley deMaria joins as our Farm-Based Learning Intern, and Souhair Kenas is our new Seasonal Educator. Saara, Corey, and Farmer John are thrilled to rock the season with our amazing new crew! See pics and bios on our staff page.

CSA REGISTRATION OPEN
Registration is open for the Red Hook CSA, our community farm-share program. Buy a weekly share of produce grown right here on the farm! Last year we provided over 70 members with a plethora of kale, peppers, eggplant, root veggies, zukes, cukes, and more. We also contract with a local supplier to offer fruit, cheese, and eggs with your weekly share. Check our CSA page for more info. Cut your carbon footprint and support local farms!

NEXT GEN / JUST FOOD
If you were at the Just Food Conference last month, you may have noticed more youth in attendance! That's thanks to a wonderful collaboration between Just Food and Added Value, East NY Farms, and the High Line. In the weeks preceding the conference, committees of youth from each organization worked to increase youth participation and amplify youth voice at the conference. Three of our seasoned teen farmers participated; see photos and their full reportback on our blog.

FELLOWSHIP OF THE ELP's
Congrats to AV Executive Director Saara, who was recently awarded an Environmental Leadership Program fellowship for 2017! She recently returned from the first of three leadership retreats, and will share the skills gained, connections made, and epiphanies had with the AV team. She is proud to join a network of nearly 1,000 ELP fellowship alums around the world who are working towards environmental stewardship and social justice.
