New School's Urban Foodie Exhibition Opens
Grow a garden in a bag
As urban dwellers, ever wondered if you can raise bees or chickens in the city? Or start a farm on your roof? These and more curious urban agriculture questions are answered at The New School's enlightening exhibition Living Concrete/Carrot City open now through December 15, 2010. Carrot City showcases doable possibilities of everyday urban food systems - projects like the Vacant Lot Grow Bag that not only efficiently produce fresh food for the community but look really cool too. A host of public programs on urban agriculture are held Wednesdays at 6:30pm. Visit the site to download an interesting Sustainable Food Guide to the Lower East Side.
Sheila C. Johnson Design Center. 5th Ave. at 13th St. Open daily 12-6pm. Admission is free.
