Adams picks greens, talks healthy living in Brownsville

The vegan Brooklyn borough president visited the new farm on Eastern Parkway on Oct. 12 to see just how much they’ve grown in less than a month on the formerly vacant lot. Eric Adams turned the garden tour into a campaign event, giving a speech about his health priorities should he be elected mayor on Nov 2. With the election just weeks away, Adams chose to talk about food as medicine, and tie it into his stance on hunger, COVID-19, and obesity. 

“Communities that experience a lack of access to healthy food experience a lack of access to healthy preventative healthcare,” Adams said in a speech after he toured the grounds.
