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

I will start growing food in my raised bed in my back yard. At my job, we are growing vegetables hydroponically.

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

Technically, I don't live in NYC, but live quite close to northern Bronx. I would like to learn from other city farmers.

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

I want to grow food in a raised bed in my back yard and possibly front yard. I would love to do some aquaponics in my sunroom.

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

Hope blossoms here

Please describe your project or farm (if relevant).

It is primarily a therapeutic gardening effort for people with cancer.


I am a RPCV from WestAfrica and live with my family in Yonkers. I am doing a career transition and want to work on urban farming and garden based education for schools.
