A Tough Harvest In Mott Haven, New York Times

Thieves broke into a farm in La Finca del Sur, reports David Gonzales for The New York Times.

The unusual farm, ran by Puerto Rican women, is in a shipping container tucked between a highway ramp and the Metro-North tracks on 138th Street and the Grand Concourse.

Fordham U. law student forced to give up farm-share program, New York Times

Farm to Fordham, a farm-share program at Fordham University for the last year and a half, ended last week after a battle with security personnel at the school, New York Times.

The program has been struggling since April when security refused to open gates for vegetable delivery, the Times reports.

The program’s founder, Michael Zimmerman, a law student, tried to work with the system to reopen, but instead received notice from the university’s lawyers saying that the program couldn’t continue.
