Re: local foods, local restaurants - CSAs?

A quick thought before work:

In addition to creating relationships with restaurants, you might to also 
might want think of your local Community Supported Agriculture ("CSA") groups 
and/or a local farmer's market as an outlet for your veggies and greens, if 
you produce them in sufficient quantities. 

This would be a great way to introduce your young people to the workplace by 
having them collect the produce early on a Saturday, get into an adult van, 
set up a table and sell the products that they grew themselves. Some young 
Bronx people , organized by the Vista program, sell high quality lettuces and 
cherry tomatoes at Greenmarkets (city run open air farmer's markets) 
throughout NYC.  

This Bronx group also has a greenhouse which makes their project year-round. 
Also, hooking up with a local CSA (where consumers sign up for a quantities 
of veggies on  a weekly basis) might be another source for your produce if 
you and can keep up with the demand. 

Good luck,
Adam Honigman
