Emma’s Torch, the nonprofit Brooklyn restaurant established by Kerry Brodie to train refugees in professional kitchen and management skills, is going farm to table. With a grant from Toast, a company that provides software for restaurant systems, the backyard has been planted with herbs and some lettuce for the cooks to tend and to use. Seating will also be available in the garden.

Emma’s Torch, 345 Smith Street (Carroll Street), Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, 718-243-1222, emmastorch.org.
