Edible Schoolyard NYC is opening its first satellite office in Dumbo at 55 Washington Street, where landlord Two Trees Management has offered the 857-square-foot space rent-free for one-year. Edible Schoolyard NYC is a new non-profit organization that partners with public schools to build gardens and kitchen classrooms to teach students the connection between food and health. Last October, Edible Schoolyard NYC established its first roots at P.S. 216 in Gravesend by transforming a former parking lot into a half-acre organic farm. “Edible Schoolyard NY is a fantastic new cultural and educational addition to the borough for children, and we at Two Trees are so happy to be able to support this initiative,” said Natalie Ungari, associate director of leasing for Two Trees, who represented the landlord. Two Trees has also recently leased free space to Sculptors Guild, a non-profit arts organization that presents local and traveling exhibitions in commercial buildings and public venues. TRD
