Farming the Big Apple
A FOOD CHAIN RADIO RELEASE FROM METROFARM.COM
New York City is made of asphalt, concrete, and steel, and thus not a place one would expect to find farmers. But people do farm the city, and they lead us to ask…
What can be farmed in the City?
This Saturday at 9am Pacific, the Food Chain Radio show with Michael Olson hosts Robin Shulman, author of Eat the City, for a conversation about the people who farm the city and the foods they produce.
Topics include a look back to when most of the foods eaten in New York City were produced within its five boroughs; how immigrants, innovators, and traditionalists continue to raise food in the city; and how foods farmed in the city can help build community in the city.
