Erica & Baxter of Randall’s Island Urban Farm

Episode: 2

Like Farmer, Like Dog is a series exploring the relationship between urban farmers and their canine companions in New York City.

In the first episode we hung out under the Williamsburg Bridge at North Brooklyn Farms with Emma and her feisty pup Jam. This time, we’re taking a trek up to the Randall’s Island Urban Farm to meet Erica Harte and Baxter. Erica is a farmer and educator in the farm’s Edible Education Program. We spend a morning learning from Erica as she teaches a group of first grade students about how their food grows, sustainability, and urban agriculture. Then, we head back to Bushwick to meet Baxter and hear about his history as a farm dog and his life in Brooklyn.
