New York City Collard of Technology?
Collard greens are just one of the vegetables grown by City Tech students in a plot at the DeKalb Market in Downtown Brooklyn. These students, under the supervision of Assistant Professor Mark Hellermann (hospitality management), grow several kinds of vegetables, herbs and edible flowers. The harvest is used in dishes prepared by hospitality students for Janet Lefler Dining Room guests. Shown here, from left to right, are Professor Hellermann, nursing student Shellita Orie, CUNY-TV’s Barry Mitchell, who is producing a segment on this City Tech initiative for the program “Study with the Best,” and hospitality management alumna Joslyn Taylor ’12, who will be tending the garden this summer.
