ROOFTOP REDS X VILLAGE VINES
Village Vines is the new, nonprofit branch of the Brooklyn Navy Yard-based Rooftop Reds. Our goal is to provide a new source of funding to benefit local communities throughout the five boroughs of New York City. We will do this by using our expertise and passion for growing grapes and making wine. The resulting Village Vine program is called ‘Vino Ordinario’.
We locate wild grape vines in NYC’s residential neighborhoods with help from the community.
A viticulture expert at Village Vines will come to your home and teach you how to maintain the health of your vine, ensuring that you can keep growing quality grapes year after year.
Is there a spot in your residential garden or community space that gets around 10-12 hours of daily sunlight? If yes, then you can grow a vine! Best of all we will give you the vine for free.
All participating growers in the program will not only receive a bottle of that village wine but they will also help determine where a portion of the sale proceeds are invested back into their community! If you have further questions or would like to participate In the program please contact our Nonprofit Coordinator Malcolm Baker at Malcolm@rooftopreds.com.
