Eat the City: Farming the Five Boroughs

May 29th, 2013 - 1:30 AM

On rooftops, in vacant lots and warehouses, New Yorkers are planting and harvesting a bounty of city-grown crops. Eat the City author Robin Shulman leads a roundtable of urban agriculture advocates including sustainability expert Derek Denckla of The Greenest, community garden activist, Marlene Wilks and Ian Marvy, director of Red Hook's Added Value. After the panel, local farm-to-table food and drink vendors set up shop to offer a diverse tasting menu while bluegrass combo The Katydids provide live music. 

Current vendors include The Meatball Shop, The Landhaus, Home by the Range, Red Hook's Fort Defiance and more. Beer tastings by Sixpoint Brewery.
