A pop up nature center in collaboration with one of New York’s biggest development companies, Two Trees, NORTH BROOKLYN FARMS is a response to build a green space amongst the industrial wasteland of old sugar factories.

Using EOTI’s brand of building "sets, scenes, and stories", Andrew Kluger was tapped to creative direct, market and act as caretaker to this unique oasis.

 

 
 
 

It is more than just a breath of fresh greenery, or a friendly community village center, or even some artistic “bubble” where children of 75 years play as puppies in the sun. It’s a response to a cultural nadir, a rebuttal to the levels we’ve sunk to.  The curators of this resistance? A coalition of passionate and generous artisans who took up their craft to improve their own lives by improving their surroundings.

These pioneers seek their own fulfillment through their love of beautiful and purposeful work- it is the tomatoes that are the paycheck.  Or maybe it is soaring through the air on a bicycle, or watching butterflies make love in a bed of wild flowers, or listening carefully to your hasidic neighbor’s personal experiences with God.

For you, it could be cooking a meal with vegetables you planted from seed and harvested with your friends, new and old.  Or having square dances with your favorite musicians. The farm is a place where the fame and the homelessness that we wear as New York City badges leave their pretense at the gate and we spend a night spinning under the open celestial summer.

Here, the bridge, Manhattan skyline, and the campfire are just some of the stars.


 
North Brooklyn Farms reshapes unused land into public green spaces where people connect with nature and one another through agriculture, and find access to sustainably-grown produce.
