In late October a group of Columbia students and children from the Grant community embarked on a trek to East New York Farms' Harvest festival. The hour and a half subway ride out to New Lots Brooklyn was long, but the festivities at the other end made the journey worthwhile. We carved and painted pumpkins, roaster marshmallows, sampled food from the stalls at the farmers' market, took a tour of the community garden, and played many a round of tag at the playground.
The trip was a great chance to get some ideas about what we might our garden to look like.
