Culture on the Cheap
New York Shitty Day Ender: Rooftop Farms
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
Today I finally got my friend and neighborhood matron/all around environmental badass Laura over to Rooftop Farm.Â Not only was she amused by the juxtaposition of a working farm with a sludge tank (as seen above) but she brought home a jar of Mike’s homemade pesto and taste-tested on the family. Her analysis:
When I got home I cooked up stuffed rigatoni with that farm fresh pesto sauce. Delicious!!!!!
I hope the pesto is available next week!
Those of you, dear readers, who are into this kind of thing and have not done so already really should sign up for Rooftop Farm’s mailing list. Not only will you get a weekly email with a rundown of produce they will have for sale on any given weekend, but they also give an itinerary of activities, workshops and times you can volunteer. Do it today. It is totally worth it!
