Do you grow food now or do you want to start growing food?

We are currently growing in containers, as we have a very large lot to use for growing. It can be quiet overwhleming for one person to plant that much of an area. So we have started small working our way up to a large scale veggie farm in the city

What neighborhood in NYC do you farm or want to farm?

Staten Island, New York

Where do you grow food or want to grow food (i.e. community garden, back or front yard, window sill, rooftop farm, etc)?

I currently grow in containers on my porch. But will like to expand into my back yard which is 60'x100. Thats only the back yard, havent included the side yard or my front yard yet.

What is the name of your project or farm (if relevant)?

I haven't thought of a name for this project because i dont consider it a project, growing is something i love to do....I love to play in the I believe everyone should try their hand at growing their food...

Please describe your project or farm (if relevant).

a work in progress...


Hello group, my name is Francisco, my wife and I like the idea of growing our own veggies. I work in heathcare and my wife works for the board of education. We like the idea of this group because knowing where our food come from is important to us.
