Occupy Farm in the Sky

By Seismologik

Organizers of Occupy Wall Street Sustainability Working group in
concert with Eco Station NY are creating a 16,000 sq foot Roof Top Farm in Bushwick Brooklyn, and we need your help.

Bushwick, Brooklyn, is home to a population of 130,000 people, many of
whom reside in neighborhoods that have been designated as food
deserts.

We assert that access to natural, nutrient dense, real food is a basic
human right.

This spring, as an affinity project of the OWS Sustainability movement
group, members will collaborate to build, design and farm a 16,000 sq
foot organic Roof Farm, utilizing smart and sustainable, Permaculture
Design techniques to grow food which will be supplied to area
restaurants, local schools, farmers markets, and CSA’s.

There will also be a ‘by donation’ farm to communal dining pantry,
planned as a companion project.

In addition to serving the community by providing freshly grown GM
free food, we will also be re-skilling individuals who will
participate in our volunteer work/learn days.

We have achievable goals ahead of us: to educate under served
communities on gardening, farming, nutrition, and the various ways to
reclaim control of our food system is just a few of the ideas bubbling
to the fore.

Our hopes of creating the change we wish to see in this world will
require support from crowdfunders.

The “Farm In The Sky” will be made open source as a  replicable and
scalable model for anyone who wishes to grow their own.

We urge all of you to consider making a modest gift to our phase 1,
spring campaign:

  1. Great! See also a sustainable financial system. Benjamin Fulford: “The first historic trades within the new financial system have taken place!” – The many global, independent trading networks all over the planet are rapidly connecting with each other, forming an infinitely expanding web of local and international commerce, exchange and trade.
    People have woken up to the fact: for most of what we spend WE DO NOT NEED GOVERNMENT ISSUED MONEY. In fact, so many different groups have been abusing the money system, it can no longer fulfil its original purposes http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/1jV7H3/www.reenagagneja.com/benjamin-fulford-historic-trades
