The Council on the Environment of New York City's Greenmarkets' Educated Eater Series presents what looks to be an interesting event this weekend:
"Did you know there are eggs and wheatgrass from Brooklyn, rooftop beehives in the Bronx, a thriving 2.5 acre community farm in Red Hook and livestock roaming on 47 acres in Queens? These are just a few examples of what urban pioneers are doing to revive agriculture in the city.
Join us for an engaging conversation with leaders and innovators in the urban agriculture movement followed by a Q&A, moderated by Greenmarket Director and Co-founder of Added Value (Red Hook Community Farm), Michael Hurwitz."
Date: Saturday February 28, 2009
Cost $5, including New York State wine and light Greenmarket snacks
Location: First Presbyterian Church, 12th St & 5th Avenue, Manhattan
