A Dinner at 8 North Broadway for the Rockland Farm Alliance


The Rockland Farm Alliance, which operates an organic farm on the Cropsey property in New City, held a fundraiser last month at 8 North Broadway. I got the chance to meet the farmers and organizers, who are really working to make small-scale farming working right here in suburbia. We’ll share more about the Rockland Farm Alliance as the summer goes on, but for now, here are a few photos from an evevning of food, fun and friends.
