FREE and open to the public: If Brooklyn had a county fair, this would be it. And like every good county fair, people would come from far and wide for the cook-offs and blue ribbon winners. Farm City.US, brought to us by Derek Dencla and his comrades at the French Institute/Alliance Française, is a series celebrating the edible that begins this Sunday. Derek has his sensibilities in both the art and local food worlds, so I anticipate a unique vision behind all the happenings.
The venue is in the spacious art gallery, the Invisible Dog in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Bring your best blue ribbon game face and find the full list of events here!
**Closing hour update from the newsroom on Friday, September 10th: Kerry Trueman has posted a wonderful exchange with Derek on Civil Eats. From her questions, Derek explains both the road leading to FarmCity.US and the possible promised land of urban agriculture in our future.**
