This week on The Farm Report, host Erin Fairbanks is joined in the studio by Anastasia Cole Plakias, co-founder and Vice President of Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm. As a managing partner of Brooklyn Grange, she has run the business’ sales department, created its events program, and manages the farm’s communications and external affairs. Anastasia also channels her love of food into weekly CSA newsletters, chock full of fun vegetable trivia and cooking tips, which were spun off to the Heritage Radio Network series, Anastasia’s Fridge.

Her new book is titled The Farm on the Roof: What Brooklyn Grange Taught Us About Entrepreneurship, Community, and Growing a Sustainable Business.
