This Sunday, we celebrate ENERGY in NYC–Sunday, March 20th at 11:30 am at Dixon Place. For the food offering, we kept thinking of GREENS–it is the vernal equinox that day, after all–and when we think of GREENS, we think of our friends at Brooklyn Grange, that wonderful rooftop farm out in, you guessed it, Brooklyn. Brooklyn Grange has presented several food offerings over the past few years and we always love having them. I’m honored to welcome Tori Sparks who is part of the Microgreens team–Tori’s also a dancer and performer who’s appeared in such NY hits as Sleep No More and The Grand Paradise. So happy to have Tori and Brooklyn Grange with us this Sunday.
Here’s Tori’s bio:
Tori is a Florida-native who has lived in New York since 1999. After training with the Brooklyn Grange team during the 2014 growing season she joined the team to develop the Microgreens with Matt Jefferson. Prior to the Grange, Tori was a gardener for Prospect Park and worked as a Florist. She obtain her Certificate in Horticulture from the Brooklyn Botanical Garden in 2015. When not on the farm, Tori continues to work as a gardener for private homes in Brooklyn and Manhattan. She is also an acclaimed dancer and performer. You may have seen her red mop running around in shows such as Sleep No More, The Grand Paradise, or as far away as Russia dancing around in her socks at the Moscow State Museum.
