My friend is a farmer-in Brooklyn. At a school to be more specific. The High School for Public Service in East Flatbush offers students the opportunity to grow food and their minds at a 1.25 acre farm in the schools front yard. Several hundred pounds of pesticide-free produce and flowers are harvested every week and then sold at a farmers market and to local restaurants. I was invited to a picnic where the kids prepared meals with the food they had grown themselves. It was delicious.
