Ground Up: Cultivating Sustainable Agriculture in the Catskill Region

This publication is fourth in a series produced by a post-graduate-level seminar within the Urban Design Program at Columbia University. Each has been focused on environmental issues facing the Upper Delaware River region. On the following pages are chronicles of six farms that are doing things differently. In recent years one of the most important changes in farming has been the renewal of regional agricultural markets, and especially the rapidly expanding urban appetite for fresh local produce. The intention of this study is to provide a public affirmation of these potentials through conversations within the farming community.
