Personal consultations on everyday urban green living

[In Annie's Gastropolis chapter, My Little Town: A Brooklyn Girl’s Food Voice.] ‘Annie Hauck-Lawson’s own beautiful recollections of her Brooklyn upbringing. She describes foraging for chives in Prospect Park, fishing along the Brooklyn coast, and keeping bees, not to mention the occasional farm animals her father brought home that would “disappear” before an especially delicious dinner (Nicky the pig for one). Her account is striking in her family’s relentless passion for Brooklyn’s own resources, exemplifying a local sustainable existence long before the term was coined.’
