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

I manage a raised bed vegetable garden in Crown Heights and have an apartment jungle at home in Washington Heights.

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

Everywhere!

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

Living in Washington Heights I have met a lot of Dominican immigrants who grew food where they came from, but we have no bed-sharing Greenthumb parks in our neighborhood. I would love to organize a new green space in my 'food desert' neighborhood to supplement the lives, diets, and community of my uptown 'hood.
