Winter Reading

Since it's cold outside and we can't really work in the garden, why not spend some time reading a great book.  I highly recommend New York City Farmer & Feast: Harvesting Local Bounty by Emily Brooks (published by Globe Pequot Press, 2012).  This book explores some of the amazing, clever and breakthrough ways that people are gardening throughout the city and there is an entire section on Brooklyn.  It features fascinating places like the Eagle Street Rooftop Garden and the Bed-Stuy Brooklyn Rescue Mission that provides a food educational program and cooking classes for the community. I also learned that there is a fish farm at Brooklyn College.  The book is a great read and there are stunning photos throughout.  Plus, there are recipes! Check it out . . .
