257 Liberty Street,
In March 2017, Bija purchased the property at 257 Liberty Street. After a restoration of the premises, we will be opening a progressive early childhood and elementary school promoting love, justice and engagement. Slated opening date is fall 2018. Tuition will be offered on a sliding scale and subsidies will be accepted. More details coming soon.
Newburgh Urban Farm
Summer 2018 will be Bija’s first summer farming in Newburgh at Audrey Carey Park. Adjacent to 257 Liberty Street, which Bija is restoring for use as a preschool and elementary school, Audrey Carey is a public park featuring playground equipment and a splash pad. Bija will be adding the beginnings of an urban farm this summer while employing youth farmers to support the project and contribute to the community. Produce grown on site will be sold at a weekly pay-what-you can farmstand on site.
Stay tuned for more details!
