      Edible Installation by Fritz Haeg Opens Today at MoMA

      Fritz Haeg and Annie Novak of Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Brooklyn have teamed up to create Domestic Integrities, a highly seasonal installation at MoMa. Part outdoor garden and part interior field, the work features medicinals, herbals, edibles, and plants for pollinators–all cultivated earlier this summer–which will be harvested throughout the course of the exhibition.

      A Report, in iPhone Photos, from Last Weekend’s Northeast Organic Farming Association Convention

      Last weekend I had a few seriously inspiring days at the annual winter conference held by NOFA-NY, the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York.

Here are some photo highlights (with captions) from my trip.

      With Two Weeks to Go, Here’s How to Buy a Thanksgiving Turkey from the Greenmarket

      Dig this helpful guide from the folks at GrowNYC, the non-profit group behind city Greenmarkets. It’s a list of which of their farmers citywide are selling turkeys, plus how to order them and where you can pick them up. Don’t forget the butchers at Dickson’s Farmstead Meats in Chelsea Market or your mail-order friends at Fleisher’s and Heritage Foods USA. (The latter will probably let you order from their new Heritage Meat Shop in Essex Market, too.)
