Newburgh to launch Urban Farmers League
NEWBURGH – Youth in the City of Newburgh will launch an Urban Farmers League in June. The group will be dedicated to farming and education for the city’s young people.
The city has granted permission to the new organization to use a vacant lot at 59 Chambers Street. The League will use the lot as a pilot project dubbed La Vida Garden, with an eye toward expanding and creating gardens in other vacant lots in the city.
The group plans on growing organic fruits and vegetables as well as conduct workshops and events in La Vida Garden.
