On this week’s episode, BTR managing editor Margaret Jacobi talks to Lee Mandell, the founder of a hydroponic farm in Bushwick, Brooklyn called Boswyck Farms. For those unfamiliar, hydroponic farming is a technique used to grow produce without soil, instead using mineral nutrient solutions added to water to foster growth.

Later, Jen speaks with writer Laura Silver, whose quest for the perfect knish led her through the history of New York City and all the way to a charming town in Poland called Knyszyn (pronounced “Knish-en”), surprisingly enough. Recently, her knish-inspired idea for a communal baking session as a form of philanthropy was chosen as a finalist in a Philanthropy Design Competition sponsored by the American Jewish World Service.

Check out this video of Laura at the Knish Alley Revival on Second Avenue in New York City from October 2010.

Silver’s project is part of Giving By Design, which will be on exhibit at 92Y Tribeca in Soho through June 23.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Megan Falley and Anis Mojgani. If you’d like to submit a poem for our consideration to be played/read/performed on the show, send the text of your poem in a Word document format to thirdeyeweekly at gmail dot com. Feel free to send an mp3 of your file but if you do, of course, we’ll have to take the file’s sound quality into consideration. So just be prepared to have one of us read your poem on the air (you know, if we like it) if we can’t tell what you’re saying.

So without further ado..
