GCF is thrilled and grateful to receive Community Project Funding from Brooklyn Congressman Hakeem Jeffries uplifting our young BIPOC adults’ work in urban agriculture and beyond for a just transition!

We are still so energized by all the support we received over the weekend at our Bay View Houses Eco-Hub! It was incredible to have national leaders Representative Jeffries and Representative McGovern meet our own GCF young adult leaders (including our own Hakim Jeffrey!) and see firsthand how they’re building our #futuregreencity through our four pillars: service, training, sustainability and justice. 💪🏿

Much gratitude as well to the NYC Mayor’s Office of Food Policy, NYC Mayor’s Office of Urban Agriculture, NYC First Deputy Mayor Sheena Wright, local Councilmembers, and NYCHA staff, resident leaders and community members for joining and supporting GCF!
