BWRC Breakfast Talk: Brooklyn’s Urban Farms: Production and Education

February 19, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

BWRC Breakfast Talk

Although the current urban farming movement predates its arrival in Brooklyn, some of the most innovative and dynamic urban farming is being done in that borough.  While urban farms address issues of sustainability, nutrition, and “food deserts,” they have always had an educational component to them.   

BWRC’s first breakfast event of the new semester will be a panel discussion on urban farms along the Brooklyn waterfront.  The panelists will include urban farmers and educators: Ben Flanner of the Brooklyn Grange, Mara Gittleman of KCC Urban Farm, and Mark Hellerman and Diana Mincyte of City Tech.
