Britta Riley will be leading a workshop on the Waterpod' Brooklyn Bridge Park pier for anyone who wants to learn how to build a windowfarm.
Windowfarms let you grow your own food in your apartment window year-round by means of hydroponics.
Bring your window dimensions (height, width, sill depth) and you will walk away with a customized design just for your apartment window.
