“Equity” and “excellence” are about to get an update.

From The NYCHA Journal:
In 2021, NYCHA farms produced 22,000 pounds of organic fresh vegetables, greens, and herbs. There are currently seven farms on the Authority’s open spaces. The inaugural farm at Red Hook Houses was launched in 2013. The other six farms are located at Wagner Houses, Howard Houses, Bay View Houses, Forest Houses, Mariners Harbor Houses, and Pink Houses.
In November 2020, the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA) was awarded a grant from the Center for Disaster Philanthropy to help our public housing authority (PHA) members better protect and serve vulnerable populations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
