Sorry this is last minute but Nathalie (one of our terrific members) just let me know she is going tonight.  Not sure if it's filled up yet or not.  I think it costs $47.  Annie is the farmer at Eagle Street rooftop farm.  She's terrific!

if you go, let me know how you liked it!

Urban agriculture has taken vegetable growing to a new level: up! Learn how to successfully grow edible crops on an urban green roof from Annie Novak of Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Brooklyn, New York. Discover which vegetables have the best flavor, pest and heat tolerance, and per-square-foot value. Learn tricks of the trade on mixing a soil growing medium, keeping the soil nutritious, and how to integrate an ecological approach into green roof farming. A hands-on portion focuses on finding the best soil mix for a green roof-turned-vegetable garden.
