FREE : Book Launch Party at Rooftop Farms

Eagle Street Farms is a 6,000 square foot produce farm on the roof of a warehouse in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  The farm grows cabbage, peas, kale, mixed greens and more and is irrigated by rainfall, which helps take the burden off of the areas sewage system. Local restaurants Marlow & Sons and Anella source produce from the farm, and other spots are interested as well.

Tonight, Brooklyn Kitchen, Brooklyn Based and Word Bookstore are partnering with Eagle Street Farms  for the launch of Farm City: Education of the Urban Farmer by Novella Carpenter. The book tells the story of a woman from Oakland determined to unite her love for city-living with her commitment to organic, homegrown herbs and vegetables.

Tonight beginning at 6:30, there will be reading from the book, a discussion and a chance to taste some of the produce from the farm.

Like most kids, Ashley grew up in New Jersey. Unlike most kids the Friedman's televison set acted as a third parent, imbuing young Ashley with the stern moral values of Claire Huxtable, the dramatic tendencies of Brenda Walsh and the earnest hopefulness of the blond kid on Silver Spoons. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence Ashley made her way to the Park Slope area of Brooklyn where she can currently be found reading foreign fashion magazines, scouring ebay for vintage heels, eating out in restaurants and otherwise stretching her meager income as far as it will go in NYC.
