A Greenmarket Grain Farm Grows on Governors Island

From the latest newsletter....
May, 2018 -- On a sunny spring morning, the Grains team loaded onto the Governors Island ferry to plant grains for the very first season of the very first Greenmarket Grain Farm -- now officially in production at the GrowNYC Teaching Garden. With the help of the garden team, led by our colleagues Shawn Connell and Dana Bourne, GRGP seeded two 50ft x 3ft beds with the perfect mix of old and new. They planted the ancient wheats einkorn and emmer, the heritage wheat red fife, a modern wheat called Tom, plus two varieties of oats - one heritage and one modern. The grasses have since sprouted through the dirt and are rising fast. Now that Governors Island is open every day, sail over yourself to check out our growing grains. There will be many more GRGP field days to come, so stay tuned for regular progress reports.
