Something exciting and unexpected is growing on old Pavilion Hill, in Staten Island. Joe Scaravella, proprieter of Enoteca Maria, along with a group of like-minded friends, is developing a biodynamic micro-farm, located on a terraced hillside, a few short blocks from his restaurant. Responding to that same inner drive that inspired him to open the Enoteca, Joe is striving to bring his food to the next level.
The grandmothers of Enoteca Maria will reap the benefits of the harvest and use this bounty of herbs, vegetables, and fruits in their time-honored recipes. They have already begun using select herbs at the Enoteca.
This is the very first biodynamic garden in the five boroughs of New York City!
