Storytime with Author David Miller of "The Greene Family Farm"
Join author David Miller for a storytime reading of his book, The Greene Family Farm. This children's book features a family in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn who realize they are living in a food desert. The family steps out on faith and opens up an organic garden in a vacant lot across the street from their apartment. The story is told from the eyes of six-year old Akousa who helps her parents run the organic farm with her mom, dad, and 11-year old brother Booker T. Washington Greene. On most weekends and after school, Akousa and her parents are surrounded by dirt, fertilizer, vegetables and fruit.
An indoor gardening art activity follows.
