This season you can find me at the Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, and City Hall Greenmarkets. I owe it to the beautiful North Carolina for introducing me to farming, and local, healthy foods. There I studied History and Political Science at a farm school. I was surrounded by my farming friends, and eating locally from our farm and garden. Ever since then I have made it a practice of mine to eat healthy, and support farming. It thrills me to continue this practice here in my native New York.
