Home-grown salad on the menu at one Brooklyn school

Every year, students from PS 15 in Red Hook, grow vegetables at Added Value, a community farm in their Brooklyn neighborhood, then serve a giant salad to their entire school.

One of the farm’s employees, Kimberly Vargas, made this video about the school’s relationship with the farm as part of a contest sponsored by the National Farm to School Network. Vargas has been working at Added Value for five years, since she was a 15-year-old Crown Heights high school student, according to a 2008 New York Times story about the farm.
