Five Borough Farm Phase II is a project of the Design Trust for Public Space, in partnership with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, to strengthen and expand urban agriculture in New York City.

The third installment of the video series documents the Five Borough Farm's project approach to data collection. The video features farmers, gardeners and Design Trust Outreach Fellows ruminating on the reasons why NYC's growers should collect data, what types of data are meaningful to them, and the current challenges in measuring the diverse impacts of their work.
