The High School for Public Service in East Flatbush is harvesting around 500 lbs. of organic produce a week from its 10,000 square foot front yard vegetable garden. Principal Ben Shuldiner. told the Daily News, "The goal was to create a focal point for learning about healthier eating. Sadly, access to fruits and vegetables is very limited in this neighborhood." Students ran the farm all summer with the help of BK Farmyards, and sell the produce at a farmer's market in front of the school every Wednesday. That sound you hear is Jamie Oliver crying over his missed opportunity.
