LunchNYC is a new program on NYC Media that looks at food in the city. Farming Concrete is excited to be featured in the very first episode, during a scale delivery and crop inventory of Tremont Community Garden in the Bronx, one of the La Familia Verde gardens.
The first episode is entitled Urban Farming:
New York City is a huge metropolis thats urban areas greatly outnumber its rural ones. Yet for a city of over 8 million people, New Yorkers consume a staggering amount of food. Lunch NYC takes a look at the efforts and movements trying to make this concrete jungle a little more edible. This episode, Urban Farming, is hosted by Nicole Parker.
Our segment features Elizabeth Butler, one of the garden’s coordinators, talking about the food in the garden and where it all goes. It also features Mara Gittleman, Farming Concrete Project Coordinator, talking about several aspects of NYC community gardening as well as the importance of data.
