ENYF Historical Case Study
Over the years, a lot of people have asked us how East New York Farms! got started, and how we grew. We often give the short version, but we are excited, through our participation in the Food Dignity Project, to be able to share this Case Study that details our history from 1995-2011, and important lessons we learned along the way.
View the ENYF! case study in a Prezi presentation.
ENYF! staff conducted StoryCorps interviews with several members of the ENYF community. Watch more StoryCorps interviews here.
