Greening the Ghetto

With 7 billion people on earth and the rapid urbanization of our societies, any piece of land becomes strategic in the race to feed the world. Nina Berman, a photographer from photo agency NOOR, started to document the movement of urban gardening in the Bronx, New York in 2010. In “Greening the Ghetto”, she goes back to Taqwa Garden, and Bobby Watson, the gardener, tells her how he and his father build up their “little piece of heaven” in Bronx.
