Farming Concrete is a volunteer, citizen science project to measure how much food is grown in New York City’s community gardens.

Calculating the area, weight, and monetary value of food grown in these spaces will highlight community gardens as a critical land use in New York City and would give the gardens a defined place in the fabric of the urban food system. It would look at the yield of a small raised bed in NYC, determine how many of our gardens might actually be considered farms in the national agricultural census, and ensure that we pay homage to the hard work and dedication of community gardeners over the last several decades who have truly made the success of urban agriculture possible today.
