Old Manhattan Has Some Farms

Old Manhattan Has Some Farms
by Susan Lendroth (Author) and Kate Endle (Illustrator)

Booktalk: No matter where you live, you can grow food! In this new take on “Old MacDonald Had a Farm,” the farmers are city dwellers and the farms consist of rooftops, empty lots, hydroponic labs, patios, and other urban nooks and crannies.

Snippet:
Spray some water here,
move an earthworm there–
pull some weeds, grab a spade.
Who’s got veggies they can trade?
