Would You Eat Food Grown in NYC?

Tell us what you think of urban farming.

Forest Hills may have just gotten but how would you feel if you found out the fruits and vegetables sold were grown in New York City? 

Green Thumb, a group affiliated with the New York City Parks Department, is in the midst of a study exploring how much of what ends up in the city's soil

And that got us to thinking: would you eat food that was grown in community gardens in New York City? 

Would a Brooklyn tomato make it into a salad on your dinner table? Does a Queens zucchini sound appetizing to you?

Let us know what you think. Vote in our poll below and share your thoughts in the comments.

I dig up batteries, dead animals, white crumbling...not sure... Passers-by relieve themselves, workers dump paint scrapings and other construction debris. People discard all sorts of stuff in the Dunbar Gardens. Would I eat a vegetable grown here? No way. We table garden in the next block. In bought soil. That, I will eat from.

I grow my own produce in Queens and enjoy eating it. Why not eat something grown in NYC? Very green to do so.
