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

I do not grow food and I cannot start such an endeavor. My abilities lie in the communication about this food movement, as well as helping others in my area with their growing projects. Ultimately, I would like to create curriculum for food studies in grades kindergarten through grade 12.

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

I live on the upper west side and it is easiest for me to stay close to home.

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

1. community garden; 2. window sill

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

I have started a website with a blog and some food articles, and also with cookware product for sale. It is at

Please describe your project or farm (if relevant).

My website, with a low-key educational blog and cookware product, is my launch into this issue after years in educational publishing. I am educating myself as I go on the wide reach of food issues--as Mark Bittman says we need to "uninvent this food system... that contributes to climate change, obesity, poisoned land and water, etc." It's too big a topic for me alone, but I can begin some small ways if I can learn from and share with others. So I'm turning to Meetup in my own beginning stages.


My work for the past 3+ decades focuses on editorial work mostly in educational publishing. I have been turning my interests from state standards to the grow-and-buy locally food issue for making good choices for a sustainable planet.
