Earlier in the month, Urban Cultivator headed down to New York to join renowned Chef David Bouley and Connecticut-based Urban Cultivator distributor Green Up in New York in an effort to promote sustainable urban farming.
As purveryors of sustainability and the local food movement, we hoped to showcase the benefits of growing your own food and the importance of sustainable practices in the kitchen.
Chef Bouley offered to host the event at his stunning living events space, Bouley Botanical, located in TriBeCa. The space was filled with greens, featuring over 400 edible species of plants growing in vertical window gardens and supported by the largest bio-dynamic green house in New England, as well as greens grown from Urban Cultivators that were installed into the space.
We discussed with the crowd what our goals were with the aim to alter the understanding that only farmers can grow food, and instead demonstrating that farming can be done anywhere.
Together, we spread the word that through growing your own food, everyone could also actively reduce his or her carbon footprint, and contribute to a greener, more sustainable future.
Urban Cultivator would like to thank Chef Bouley and the staff at Bouley Botanical, as well as Green Up, for helping us in putting on such a wonderful event.
Here’s to a brighter, greener future.
