Manager

This season you can find Lara Bock at the Dag Hammarskjold, Ft. Greene and Brooklyn Borough Hall Greenmarkets. She owes it to the beautiful North Carolina for introducing her to farming, and local, healthy foods. There she studied History and Political Science at a farm school. Lara was surrounded by her farming friends, and eating locally from their farm and garden. Ever since then she has made it a practice to eat healthy, and support farming. She is thrilled to continue this practice here in her native New York. 

On Monday, July 11, we launched the “Oh SNAP!” educational campaign with a live mural painting on a Greenmarket, Co. delivery truck. The “Oh SNAP!” campaign was designed to draw attention to the fact that GrowNYC’s network of Greenmarkets accept electronic benefits cards (EBT) and shoppers can use their SNAP benefits to purchase farm-fresh produce from the region’s mid-sized family farmers.
