Maritza Wellington Owens, CEO of Harvest Home; Brother Num, percussionist
Parallax: noun- The effect whereby the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions.
The fifth installment of the Parallax Conversation Series elaborated on the notion of the community environment, as we brought together the CEO of Harvest Home Farmers Markets, a non-profit dedicated to increasing access to local, farm-fresh produce to low-income neighborhoods, with percussionist Brother Num, a long-time Harlem resident and avid gardener. The pair had an interesting and informative conversation as their passions for urban agriculture, Harlem, and music intersected; like jazz at its best, we had no idea what to expect! Fortunately, it turned out to be a truly fascinating evening.
