Even right after the blizzard of 2010 (or snowpacolypse or whatever it is you prefer), the greens needed tending and harvesting. The Swiss Chard, Bok Choy, Lettuce and more all look beautiful, but more importantly, taste great.
The snow is no match for Walter and Lindsay.
We are now selling fresh Lettuce, Collards, Scallions, Broccoli, Arugula and more from our site at Washington and Spruce. Officially we are open for business from 3-7 Monday thru Fridays, and working out our weekend hours. So stop by, check out our progress, and take home a beautiful salad mix sometime this week.
Upon opening the gate to the Farm, West Ward Councilman Ron Rice was instantly moved by what he saw: varieties of peppers (he prefers sweet), rows of corn (“growing in Newark?!”, which is the nearly universal response), lettuce, herbs, a pumpkin patch, and a field of tomatoes. “Wow! And you can do this on rooftops too? How do we bring this to the West Ward?”
