For many of us who grew up in New City, we are very happy to see that "Cropsey Farm", is back to farming.  Last year, 5 acres of the property was used for a community garden.  This garden was formed by the town, county and the Rockland Farm Alliance, and is known as Cropsey Community Farm.  Wednesday it was announced that an additional 7 acres would be added to the area for growing purposes.  Last year, there were more than 200 families that participated in the farming of the land.  This community support help lead to the addition of the 7 acres.  As of now, the new land is already been plowed and plans of what are to be planted are in the works.  If you are interested in being a part of Cropsey Community Farm, you can volunteer.  Volunteers are needed, and are welcome 7 days a week from 8am-6pm
