Veggie Island, a market for locally grown organic produce is kickstarting for greenhouses, refrigeration, and kitchen equipment

Welcome to Veggie Island! We are located in Rockaway Beach, a little beach town in New York City. The neighborhood has gone through many ups and downs, and is currently in a stage where there is support and community interest in beautifying and increasing the over all quality of life on the peninsula. Here there is awesome natural beauty and opportunity to experience Atlantic coastal wildlife. Our business wants to foster the natural connections between the people, their environment, and the food we eat. Veggie Island's objective is to feed people fresh foods and offer ecologically friendly products, supporting a growing system of health and healthy living. In addition to creating a retail venue that can help improve the infrastructure in the Rockaways, we aim to provide multi-faceted outreach to the community involving gardening, cooking, youth internship, and overall environmental awareness.   

Please check our bio below for more information and additional web links.

We appreciate your interest and fundraising support!

Funds received via Kickstarter will go the following: 

We want to start a gardening program with greenhouses and raised beds. We will be growing everything organically, promote seed saving, and start a composting program to utilize our organic waste of both the garden and Veggie Island. In addition to the greenhouse gardens we need to repair and rebuild aspects of our shop. We plan on expanding our goods and services offered, to do so we need get the appropriate refrigeration and equipment. Not to mention certain licensing and legal fees.

Every little bit helps us grow, and you will be sure to enjoy your Veggie Island rewards! 

BLESS
