This September, Scott hosted a panel discussion with the founders of the Brooklyn Flea, Blue Marble, Brooklyn Grange, Alive Structures, and Crop to Cup at Greenlight Bookstore in Ft Greene, Brooklyn. These five remarkable and innovative Brooklyn entrepreneurs talked with a crowd of 65 of their neighbors about the various roles community plays in growing their independent businesses—from mutual inspiration and collaboration amongst each other, to the benefits of participating in, supporting and engaging with their neighborhoods.

The all-star panelists included Eric Demby, co-founder of the Brooklyn Flea; Alexis Miesen of Blue Marble Ice Cream and Blue Marble Dreams Rwanda; Ben Flanner of the 40,000 sq ft rooftop farm, Brooklyn Grange; urban landscaper Marni Majorelle of Alive Structures; and Taylor Mork of Crop to Cup/The Coop on Atlantic. Presented by Scott Ballum, Director of Sheepless.org, the Magazine for Community Makers.
