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

No. Yes!

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

Uptown! ~145th street! There's a very small community garden on my block 147th st between amsterdam and bway (few herbs, no food I know of) and a large vacant lot and LARGE former school that the community unsuccessfully fought to wrest control of a few years ago. There is a forest growing IN the building now...SO much potential!

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

I have been thinking more about growing herbs--but herbs and food are often the same thing. I dream of seeing more urban people seize control of the health of their bodies and communities...and to help facilitate that.
