Five Borough Farm: Supporting Urban Agriculture in New York City

Thursday, November 8, 2012

New York is one of the most vibrant urban agriculture cities in the United States, with more than 700 existing sites (there are nearly 3 times as many farms and gardens in the city as there are Starbucks locations). We’re pleased to have Abby Youngblood, Food and Environment Program Officer at the North Star Fund and Coordinator of Community Food Funders, talk about the Five Borough Farm Project and the benefits of urban agriculture as she recaps a recent funder briefing and strategy session hosted by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
