Book is the result of a year long photo urbanism fellowship

Design Trust for Public Space
From Roof to Table features 35 full-color photographs that beautifully capture New York City’s urban farms and gardens. The winner of the Design Trust’s 2011 Photo Urbanism fellowship, Brooklyn-based photographer Rob Stephenson spent a year visiting over one hundred farms and gardens-from a farm in Staten Island with 10-foot-high stalks of corn to a church rooftop in Manhattan repurposing baby pools to grow fresh food.
From Roof to Table provides a compelling overview of urban agriculture in New York City and underscores the power of photography to illuminate New York City’s vibrant public spaces.
