Co-op Technical School
The School of Cooperative Technical Education provides students with hands-on training in high demand and cutting edge vocations. Agritecture donated a 50-channel NFT system to the school, and assisted in rehabilitating a neglected rooftop greenhouse into a small scale commercial enterprise. Agritecture currently contributes weekly time in educating and helping Mrs. Ferguson's Green Team, an interdisciplinary group of students, operate their greenhouse. Only growing since 2016, the Green Team has already initiated an entrepreneurial farmer's market and begun designs for a vertical outdoor growing system.
TEENS FOR FOOD JUSTICE
Teens for Food Justice is galvanizing a youth-led food justice movement! TFFJ works in Title 1 schools to train youth to become urban farmers: building and maintaining indoor hydroponic farms that yield more than 22,000 lbs. of fresh produce annually at each location. TFFJ school farms also serve as youth-led centers for nutrition and health outreach to local low-income, food desert communities. We support TFFJ through reduced-rate consulting as well as serving on their board of advisors.

Comprised of both private venture and nonprofit organizations, the Collective represents all 5 Boroughs and encourages ongoing membership. Since its inception in 2015, the Collective has hosted a well-attended, week-long AgTech Week and engaged the Brooklyn Borough President Office in policy discussions.
