Just 30 minutes from Midtown, the Stone Barns Center can make you a farmer for life–or just an afternoon.
Chefs for the Marcellus–a group of chefs concerned that hydraulic fracturing (aka fracking) will damage our upstate farms, wineries and breweries–is hosting a fundraising dinner this Thursday at the Brooklyn Winery in Williamsburg.
On Tuesday, July 24, fourteen concurrent dinners, each prepared by a top New York chef using produce from an urban farm, will take place around the city in private homes.

Perhaps next week’s Good Dairy event should’ve been called Excellent Dairy. Judging by the lineup of decadent dairy and delightful drinks our vendors will be serving on April 25th, it looks like we’re in for a fabulous evening. And what could be more appropriate for our nightlong ode to dairy than the big, white space at the Openhouse Gallery on Mott Street in Nolita?
If you’re spending this Earth Day (it’s Sunday) north of the city–hiking or biking the Hudson, perhaps–consider an afternoon stop off at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie for a discussion with four of the most forward-thinking sustainable ag businesses in the region.
New Yorker, we love you. But we’re so fond of the cartoon our graphic designer made for a contest last year, we’d like to keep doing it.
