Benepe Opens New Organic Garden In Lower ManhattanJanuary 21st, 2012 | Posted by in Organic Farming | Organic Food | Organic Gardening
A new organic garden has been opened in lower Manhattan by the New York Commissioner of Parks Adrian Benepe, who was accompanied by officials of the Battery Conservancy and students from three schools in lower Manhattan at the flagging-off event. The one-acre farm, shaped like ….. the turkey a bird resident in the farm, was conceived by students at Millennium High School; will be growing several types of vegetables ranging from broccoli to peas which will be served for launch in schools and in local restaurants and also as an 'outdoor classroom' for the kids to expand their 'taste literacy'. Benepe praised the kids for making good use of the idle plot of land even as he noted that the site once served as a Dutch garden in 1625.
