Old Manhattan Has Some Farms

Atlanta Page

Time for a little shameless self-promotion: My new picture book, Old Manhattan Has Some Farms, hits bookstores and online sources today. Introducing children to urban agriculture, it takes a lighthearted look at how communities are adding locally grown foods to the menu through container gardens, reclaimed vacant lots, beekeeping, hydroponics and composting. Old Manhattan highlights cities across North America, including New York, Chicago, Seattle, Toronto, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta, depicted here with the dancing worms.

Old Manhattan coverOn a high rise here,
in a backyard there —
climbing up, hanging down,
spreading green all over town

Old Manhattan has some farms.
E-I-E-I-Grow!

And while I can’t think of a way to connect it to my blog’s theme of letters, I’m just so thrilled to have a new book on the shelves I had to say something!

    Hi Susan, my friend with the sustainable group is willing to review. Should I have her get a copy at Amazon?
