Cooking with Cover


Loading Events

Cover crop is used to feed the soil especially after a cash crop has been harvested and nutrients depleted. In Carbon Sponge, NYSCI’s Designer-in-Residence Brooke Singer is growing a range of cover crops including black-eyed peas, pigeon peas, and mung beans. These plants are not only great for enriching the soil but are also used in delicious recipes from around the world!

Join us for a night of “Cooking with Cover” where we will discuss the value of cover crops and how we are using them in Carbon Sponge while enjoying samples of cover crop foods.

Held in collaboration with Queens Night Market, this event will take place during the October 13th Queens Night Market.
