ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY
Growing Cities was formally a kickstarter funded project, about two young men making a journey across America to learn about urban agriculture and how it is revitalizing cities one animal, vegetable, and chicken at a time.
ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
A Farm Manager at the Long Island City operations for Brooklyn Grange. Before joining the Brooklyn Grange team, he turned nine acres of Vermont soil into delicious, organic vegetables. When he’s not up on the farm staking tomatoes, he can be found listening to 99.5 FM, sipping green juice and studying up on nutrition.
Brooklyn Grange is New York City's leading rooftop commercial urban farming business, growing over 50,000 lbs of organically-cultivated produce per year and distributing fresh local vegetables and herbs.
