The Randall’s Island Urban Farm began as a small teaching garden in 2007.  By 2011, they had formalized programs with schools in East Harlem and the South Bronx, and now host thousands of students each year as part of their edible education program.  In this special presentation by Heritage Radio Network, we’ll take a tour with Farm Manager Nick Storrs to learn about innovations in kid-oriented urban gardening, meet a few feathered friends, and discover some surprising crops along the way.

This piece was produced by Caity Moseman Wadler as part of a New York University graduate course on Sustainability in the Urban Environment, led by Dr. Carolyn Dimitri.
