Emily Winkler-Morey grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where the mayor recently declared April 19th to be 'ski to work day.'  Year-round farmers' markets and fresh greens in March are a marvel to her. She came to NYC five years ago to attend Eugene Lang College, where she explored urban studies and dance. She maintains the double-vision of these fields, promoting healthy, happy cities and healthy, happy bodies. Emily first joined GrowNYC as an AmeriCorps service member, working to connect Greenmarkets with emergency food services. After a second AmeriCorps term at Henry Street Settlement, she is thrilled to be back on the Greenmarket team.       



We are thrilled to announce construction is moving along and we are so close to opening the doors to our new public home, Project Farmhouse.
