Our new Rockaway hop farm

3 Aug

These photos are from our weekend of planting hops! We did two beds at a once abandoned firehouse that Jeanne, from the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance, is slowly renovating. We also did two beds in an abandoned lot near our bungalow. Then we went guerrilla and took the last shots as we planted in the abandoned areas in the 40s just off the boardwalk.

The hops are Cascade and are from the Cornell program which is making an effort to bring hops back to New York. On the whole we planted 50 vines with a set also headed for a community garden in East Harlem as well as the City Reliquary in Williamsburg.

A special thanks to Bill Sconga from the Reliquary for helping us build and install the planter boxes.
