I have been busy working on my latest photo feature for Nona Brooklyn about the amazing new Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm and Apiary over at The Brooklyn Navy Yard. The entire crew from The Grange are inspiring and the farm, produce and honey are unbelievable. They have several farm stands at markets in Brooklyn and Queens where you can buy their produce and honey bee products. A few retail stores and several local restaurants carry and cook with their produce as well.
For those of you unaware I also shoot a monthly, sometimes bi-monthly, photo feature for the amazing James Beard award finalist, group blog Nona Brooklyn. Nona is all about local, artisanal, sustainable and/or traditional food and drink made by people for a passion for what they do.
To see the full feature (photos and story) on Nona Bklyn, about the farm and apiary at the Yard click HERE.
Hopefully you will be as inspired as I was to grow your own food, eat locally grown produce and become more connected with your community and the environment.
