    Brooklyn has become the haven for urban agriculturist and farmers from all over the world! This is really exciting.

    Since 2009 in Bed-Stuy, Yonnette Fleming has been cooking up something good for the community at the Hattie Carthan Community Market every Saturday. Using homegrown herbs and vegetables from the garden, the recipes are a hundred percent authentic and inspiring. Yet, something even more special is brewing- a feast to those who nurture nature. Ms. Fleming is hosting a celebration for the farmy folks in all of us, their first annual Farmy Folks Soiree. This family function is on Saturday November 13th, from 6pm to 10pm, right around the corner from the garden on Clifton Place and Marcy Avenue. Farmy films and folk music will be the pulse of the event, guiding us right to the 2010 harvest review of the Hattie Carthan Market. A formal tribute to those who have helped out at the garden with their hard work and time toward building something positive for the community.

    But you don’t have to wait until then to enjoy autumn in the garden. Their Pumpkin Fest is this Saturday and they have plenty of treasures to hunt and pumpkins to carve if you’re up for it! In commemoration of Halloween, the day of the dead, there will be an art exhibit honoring food as essential for remembering the dead. Festivities go from 9am until 4pm. Expect fresh seasonal treats like mulled cider and pumpkin bread. Costumes are welcome!
