Add to Calendar 29-07-2013 02-08-2013 15 American Museum of Natural History and Design Trust for Public Space Present a Special “Five Borough Tasting” The American Museum of Natural History, in collaboration with The Design Trust for Public Space, invite you to savor delicious seasonal specialties grown in each New York City borough and served up fresh in the kitchen of the Museum’s Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture exhibition. The tastings will be held for five consecutive days beginning Monday, July 29, through Friday, August 2, from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm. The Five Borough Tasting is inspired by Five Borough Farm, a Design Trust project, now in Phase II with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation that is designed to help urban farms on the ground and on rooftops all over the city understand and measure their yields, needs, and benefits to the city. The five-day tasting event will also consider urban farming within the larger context of food systems examined in the Museum’s Our Global Kitchen exhibition, which offers a comprehensive look at the vital topic of food from the perspectives of the environment, food supply, and human cultures. Tastings will be held in the 735-square-foot working kitchen of the exhibition, the first-ever of its kind in an American Museum of Natural History exhibition. Urban agriculture is booming in New York City, with more than 700 food-producing urban farms and gardens citywide. In all five boroughs, New Yorkers have turned vacant lots and rooftops, schoolyards and New York City Housing Authority gardens into places to grow food. But urban agriculture also encompasses a wide range of other activities: participants earn income at farmers markets, capture storm water, compost food waste, gain leadership and job skills, learn about nutrition and the environment, and create safe, attractive public spaces. These activities contribute to many citywide health, social, economic, and ecological benefits. FIVE BOROUGH TASTING SCHEDULE: Monday, July 29 Bronx—Food Under Your Feet (in partnership with SAVE Farms) will show visitors how to find edible foods in the wild. Tastings: Garlic mustard pesto Tuesday, July 30 Queens—At 2 acres, Brooklyn Grange’s Brooklyn Navy Yard location is the largest rooftop farm in the world. Tastings: Fresh Queens salad Wednesday, July 31 Brooklyn—Gotham Greens is partnering with Whole Foods to create the nation’s first commercial scale greenhouse farm integrated in a retail grocery space for the new Whole Foods store in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Tastings: Fresh Brooklyn salad Thursday, August 1 Manhattan—Harlem Seeds teaches children that it is possible to grow fresh food in Harlem and the joys of healthy cooking. Tastings: Fresh corn salad Friday, August 2 Staten Island—Heritage Farm at Snug Harbor’s Cultural Center increases awareness about the importance of eating locally. Tastings: Roasted summer squash http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=142396 American Museum of Natural History true DD/MM/YYYY
