Garden Kitchen Lab

The Garden Kitchen Lab is a backyard-to-table educational program for underserved communities. Our mission is to give youth and their families access to healthy and locally grown food through starting and sustaining food-producing gardens. This hands-on multi-disciplinary program puts the power in the hands of community citizens, so they understand the link between food production, the environment and their health, and take ownership of their nutrition.

Do What You Can, With What You Have, Where You Are

NYC Parks Media Education partnered with NYC Beekeeping to develop a new series of projects called “Media With A Purpose”. In an effort to join ‘sustainability’ and ‘media’; and how technology and agriculture can and should work hand in hand. This film was created by teen students of Red Hook and Sunset Media Labs in record time! Thank you CTE Summer Scholars for interns Mayumi Gurung, Emily Lee, Jacquline Salas, Aziza Alvarenga and Mario Lowe, they were all incredibly talented apprentices who filmed and edited this documentary in three days!!! Thank you Media Coordinator Beatrice Toscano for your rigorous student’s training, you rock! 💪 Thank you NYC Parks Five Borough for allowing us to film on your green roof and for all of your amazing resources; thank you NYC Parks Media Education for all your ongoing support, and thank you Liane Newton for being an inspiration and role model to our students! 🐝
