First Distribution!

Thanks to everyone who came yesterday and made our kick-off press event and first distribution a huge success!  We had an excellent group of people, including Deputy Borough President Yvonne Graham, New York City Coalition Against Hunger (NYCCAH) Executive Director Joel Berg, Gail Branch Muhammad, Special Assistant to Rep. Ed Towns, and former district 36 city council candidate Mark Winston Griffith.   NY1 even stopped by to film! You can check out their piece here!

The share yesterday included a head of romaine lettuce, spinach, kale, garlic scapes, radishes, cilantro, and a choice of sage or thyme.  We grabbed some great photos as well!

  1. I just wanted to say thank you for introducing me to garlic scapes! Everything I picked up on Wednesday was lovely and delicious, but the scapes were the most fabulous discovery. They’re so weird-looking, I doubt I would have picked them up if I’d seen them in the store, or even at the green market.

    I haven’t tried cooking them yet … because I keep eating them raw! I’ve been chopping them into my salads (with the excellent romaine, spinach and cilantro from the farm, of course), and they give my salads such a kick. Wish I’d gotten to take home a whole basket full of them!
