From Rooftops and Abandoned Lots, an Urban Harvest

From rooftop apiaries in Paris to a vegetable-and-chicken farm in Philadelphia, agriculture has come to the city. This hour, urban farmer Mary Seton Corboy and food writer Jennifer Cockrall-King talk about the future of food. And how about some dandelion flower jelly? Tama Matsuoka Wong, forager for Restaurant Daniel in New York City, talks about the joys of eating garden weeds.
