BRENTWOOD — An organic farm run by the Sisters of St. Joseph Brentwood is cultivating fresh and affordable vegetables to a neighborhood in Long Island where you’d least expect it.

The expansive farmland raises radishes, Sicilian eggplant, zucchinis, and tomatoes on 27 acres of land without the use of chemicals or pesticides.

The agricultural endeavor has become a success, some good news for an area that’s made national headlines for gang activity.
