FOND was first introduced to Brendan Davison, founder of Good Water Farms back in November through a mutual friend who knew it would be immediate kismet. Since first sampling the sweet and unfathomably nutritious Microgreens superfood that Davison grows on his land in Long Island, we were hooked. Since then, Davison has been expanding rapidly and now supplies multiple Whole Foods and Gourmet Garage locations in the NY area. You can also order his delicious greens from organic home delivery service Rustic Roots Delivery (use code FOND to save 10% off your first two orders).
In spite of his busy schedule, Davison still makes time to give back to the community and we caught up with him this past weekend out at Rockaway Beach. Davison was posted up at Rockaway Beach’s 96th Street Relief Center where he spent the day offering educational microgreens demos in support of the building of a new community garden. Good Water Farms was at the event along with other local green business owners and artisans to help raise awareness for the garden build as well as educate locals on urban farming and the importance of sustainable food, fashion and other eco friendly products.
We were lucky enough to witness the excitement around the uber ladybug freeing (they are pollinators for the greens) as well as take home our own Sunflower microgreens pot which will begin producing the delicious edible greens in just a few days from the comfort of our NY apartments.
