The community gardens that speckle New York's neighborhoods provide a verdant area for community recreation, a source of fresh organic produce, and an opportunity to engage with environmental issues. ioby mobilizes individuals and donations to complete small-scale projects that bring green space to local neighborhoods.
ioby’s Free Eggs on the Free Range in Brooklyn campaign will help to fund a coop for organic free-range chickens on the Bushwick City Farm, an urban farm that adds green public space and fresh produce to a Brooklyn neighborhood with limited access to fresh food. The chickens will provide the community with a source of free organic eggs and an opportunity to interact with and care for the animals. This month ioby-organized volunteers will help clear spaces for new produce and build a new coop, but they are still in need of funding for necessary supplies.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help ioby volunteers cultivate the Bushwick City Farm in Brooklyn. If G-Team members raise $500, ioby can fund the construction of a new chicken coop for its Free Eggs on the Free Range project. Each additional $10 raised will go toward topsoil and lumber to build out the raised gardening beds beside the chicken coop.
