The Farmer’s Market is a weekend must-do for many especially in big cities. But often, the food and products are trucked in, or even flown in from faraway places.   

The idea of an Urban Farm, with food grown just a subway or a bus ride away has taken hold. Kellan Davidson of Ithaca College talks with The Battery Conservancy’s Farm Manager Carol Hammer about farming for production and community in Manhattan.   

Deborah Greg, Urban Agriculture Coordinator for East New York Farms explains how their farms have provided fresh fruits and vegetable for neighborhoods, and a project to unite neighbors and youth in a shared project.
