Welcome to my foodshed
My story, “Fresh Food for All: Local farmers could revolutionize how millions of New Yorkers eat,” appears in the fall issue of OnEarth magazine. Emphasis: could — there are a lot of good reasons city folk don’t eat more regionally grown fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and meat. Locally brewed beer, on the other hand, is plentiful, and I count myself lucky to live in the Sixpoint Brewery beershed.
Reporting the story brought me to several farms in the Catskills, as well as to the Hunts Point market in the South Bronx. You can read all about it, and see Rob Howard’s wonderful photos, here.
