Urban Agriculture

Let’s state the obvious: New Yorkers are a pretty adventurous breed. We’ll try almost anything once. But a lot of us draw the line at farming. Sure, there may be a pot of chives on your kitchen windowsill, but fruit trees, vegetable gardens, and beekeeping? That’s relegated to those with impressive outdoor terraces, or to nuts. Until now. On Sunday, September 12th, join the French Institute from 11-5 on their Farm City tour, part of their “Where are you growing?” series. Beginning at the Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn, the tour travels through the borough to explore urban agriculture, and the chefs who utilize these hyper-local ingredients—and you’ll quickly see, as well as taste, that these green-thumb urbanites are the boldest of us all.
