North Brooklyn Farms needs your help to continue their mission of activating vacant lots into vibrant urban farms, and they’re hosting a party this Friday for supporters.The first NBF farm opened at an abandoned Domino Sugar Factory site last year as an interim space and has provided the community with fresh produce and food education ever since. But since the Domino urban farm is just temporary, they need to raise $15,000 in the next five days to find and build a new home. If you’d like to contribute, please visit the North Brooklyn Farms Kickstarter page here and attend the NBF July 4th BBQ Picnic at (6 to 10 p.m. at Havemeyer Park at Kent Avenue and South 3rd Street). There will be music, Brooklyn Brewery beer, food by Sweet Deliverance and a view of the East River fireworks!
