Student Farm Project for Edible Brooklyn's Summer Issue

Last month I had the pleasure of shooting another story for Edible Brooklyn's Summer Issue. This time it was about farmer Nora Painten's Student Farm Project in Brownsville, Brooklyn, where an abandoned lot was turned into an 8,000 square foot urban teaching farm. I was also thrilled to be paired with amazing Edible Editor Rachel Wharton who wrote the piece, so be sure to give it a read here or pick up a copy or subscribe. Besides the lovely printed piece I wanted to share some of my other favorite photos from the day. The kids were great! 

I almost got the cover this time but in the end the wonderful editors at Edible choose Emily Dryden's beautiful photo of the Wyckoff Farmhouse, but it was still nice to be considered and to see my photograph mocked up as a cover!
