Carmen borough-hops from her backyard in Brooklyn, over to Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden. She visits with Ezra Pasackow, Farm Manager at the Heritage Farm (2020 is his first season in this role). The 2.5-acre Heritage Farm is cared for in an environmentally sustainable manner so that it will claim permanence on Staten Island and continue to produce fresh fruits and vegetables for years to come.
Ezra and Carmen discuss the farm’s mission and what Ezra is learning about the land, community, and history of Snug Harbor, which was the home to a community of retired sailors at its peak between 1880 and 1910.
