After a winter in California, where I indulged in endless amounts of farmers’-market procured local citrus, we’re back in Brooklyn. The citrus may not be as plentiful, but it’s still good to be home.
I’ve taken up shop to finish the book at the wonderful collective office space known as GreenSpaces NY, filled with found furniture and funky antiques, succulents and sculptures. Along with collective thrice-weekly lunches, the eclectic folks here are getting ready to take the seedlings sprouting next to my desk to the rooftop garden they’re creating and signing up anyone who’s interested for our very own CSA.
Feels like this is definitely a sympatico spot to be finishing a book on ecological agriculture, climate change, and the future of eating.
I can’t say I don’t miss those organic local strawberries, but I’m looking forward to dining on roof-grown produce soon enough.
Here are a few pics of the place:
