Craftsman Avenue is home to some of the most talented Makers in the borough. We want to give these awesome people the chance to introduce themselves to our community, starting with none other than Brooklyn RaVisions, who is transforming sustainability in our city.
Brooklyn RaVisions is a local landscape and garden service committed to biodiversity, function and creativity. Our garden installations contain native perennial plants and organic matter in place of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. As an ecology-driven landscaping service we compost spent plant material which is widely unheard of in our city. Despite the pleasant feeling we all get watching plants be put in the ground, in a city that desperately needs the breaks in concrete, there is a darkness to the supply chain and waste stream in our industry. Brooklyn RaVisions is committed to finding truly sustainable solutions that make “greening our city” a truly green operation.
Our long term goal is to create a zero-waste landscaping service, that boasts custom self-watering planter boxes, our own composting facility- open to other landscaping companies, and many other revolutionary improvements. As I’ve heard the founders of The People’s Dinner say, “Relationships move at the speed of trust but social change moves at the speed of relationships.” We hold this in our hearts as we pitch our minds toward creative solutions and hope that our neighbors join us along the way. Brooklyn RaVisions is in the process of obtaining MWBE certification through the state of New York.
