Urban Gardening with Author of Four Fish
Paul Greenberg is being applauded in the media for his new book “Four Fish” (see the New York Times Book Review!), but most people don’t know that he is a radical urban gardener. His New York City apartment in a high-rise building is only a few blocks from Ground Zero – an area Paul believes should have more green space – particularly of the kitchen garden variety. To prove his point and to help feed his family, Paul planted a kitchen garden on his shady apartment terrace. He calls it Ground Zero Garden. Parent Earth made these videos to show how he gardens on the size- and light-challenged site as he strives for a diversified crop and – as he says – “salad self-sufficiency.” Paul Greenberg’s 3 year-old son helps – sort of.
