Most people don’t connect the word “farming” with “urban.” However, the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons The New School for Design is unveiling a new exhibition this week that tackles this very topic – urban farming in New York City.  Through models, drawings and multimedia installations, the exhibition presents a range of projects – both realized and conceptual – that explore this growing movement and the impact it has on the city.

An opening reception will be held Thursday, September 30, from 6-8 pm and will feature Edible Cocktails by the Cross(x)Species Adventure Club, a cooking demonstration by students of Summer Youth Employment Program, a partnership between BK Farmyards and Growing Leaders, Brooklyn, and Hudson New York Corn Whiskey by Tuthilltown Spirits.
