The following is from
Staten Island, New Yorkwww.LettuceBeeSustainable.
I don't quite have a farm, as I live in the heart of New York City. I live smack in the middle of a residential neighborhood. I live and grow vegetables, propagate lavenders and boxwoods, raise chickens and now starting a beehive on a 7,000 square foot lot. I know that sounds crazy but its true. My wife thinks I'm nuts, but I am trying to see if it is possible to achieve sustainability in an urban setting, while nurturing the eco system where I live, Its my own urban experiment.
The working girls.
The boxwoods I propagated, lined them out in growing beds, I have since sold all of them to friends and neighbors.
