Leda’s No Impact Week & Your Edible Garden
A couple of weeks ago I participated, along with close to 5000 others, in the No Impact Project. It was a week-long carbon cleanse that had me cooking by candlelight and going back on the strict version of my 250-mile diet. You can read about what it was like in this piece I share with fellow Green Edge NYC member Patricia Curry.
What would you like to learn about how to grow your own food, even if all you’ve got for garden space is a window box? As part of my new job as gardening program coordinator for NYBG, I’m brainstorming classes to go along with next year’s Edible Garden theme. There’s also the opportunity to include some edible garden-related cooking and food preservation classes in the kitchen they’re installing in the new Manhattan branch of NYBG. What do you want to know about edible plants, how to grow them, and what to do with them? I’d love to hear from you!
