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

I do! I've had an herb garden that I kept through winter and I currently started seeding for summer.

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

I farm in Flatbush/Ditmas Park, Brooklyn.

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

I farm on my windowsill and fire escape in Flatbush, Brooklyn, but I'd love to have more space and fresh soil.

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

It has no name, but now that you mention it, I will find an appropriate name for it soon!

Please describe your project or farm (if relevant).

My farming at this point in time is more of a personal project. Although, I gifted herb salt made in house from my herb garden for the holidays. For now, I have an extensive hazardous fire escape garden in which I grow tomatos, bok choy, peppers, onions, and garlic.


Hi All, my name is Paola and I'm a makeshift urban-fire-escape farmer these days. I've been knee-deep in farming since helping my grandfather with his farm in Puerto Rico, and haven't been able to shake it off ever since.
