Episode 81: Farming State of Mind (NYC)

After 2 weeks of funny/cooking videos – we are back on track with videos from the road.  This week (and next) we visit some incredible folks who are making real food happen around New York City.  In this case – its three very different farmers, sharing their New York experience.

    I miss New York.
    The interesting thing about these three farmers is that they all talk about community — even though their concepts and relative communities are pretty different, they all come back to the same concept. Nice work presenting that.

    this one is SO awesome! So inspiring and such diversity all in the big city. Good work. You guys are documenting folklores as they are being created.

    Congrats on this informative and inspiring episode, Daniel. All three of the featured farmers offer powerful testimony to the importance of urban food systems. IMHO, the most quotable quote is from Jack Algiere: “It’s not about feeding the world. It’s about engaging our community.” Those 11 words should immediately disarm any opponent of urban ag!

      a great quote, and subject.  was one of those moments when i heard it – and knew it would make it in the video.

    Intense content. Humanizing agriculture is a great way to frame what a lot of folks are trying to achieve with food right now. And I love the old wisdom that he who controls your food supply controls you. Great episode. People can be so inspiring!
