About this event

Join us at The Battery Urban Farm for some projects for all ages in the vegetable farm. This is a fun and active event for families looking to get outside and get dirty! Farm staff will lead participants in the tasks needed to set up our farm for the spring – this could include planting, weeding, spreading mulch, harvesting, and more!  No experience necessary.  We recommend this event for ages 5 and up with adult supervision and participation; younger siblings are welcome.  RSVP is required for this event, though you are welcome to arrive and leave at any time during the morning. Registration will open one month in advance of event.

PLEASE NOTE that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic we require all participants to wear masks covering nose and mouth while on the farm.

Location: The entrance to The Battery Urban Farm. Map  (Directions: Enter the park on State Street and Broadway near the 4/5 head house or the Netherlands Memorial flag pole: Walk around the left side of Battery Oval lawn towards the harbor. The entrance to the farm is located on the lefthand side just after the Bikeway.)

What to bring:  A mask that covers your nose and mouth! We will provide gloves for all participants.  Please bring a water bottle and wear closed-toe shoes and any layers and sun protection you will need to be comfortable outside for the morning.  This program will occur light rain or shine; in the event of inclement weather, participants will be e-mailed in advance with notice of any changes.

Organizer The Battery Conservancy

Organizer of Family Farm Volunteer Day at The Battery Urban Farm: August

The Battery, New York City’s first waterfront park was created in 1693. Some 300 years later, private citizens established The Battery Conservancy to raise funds to transform the 25-acre landscape which had become dilapidated, downtrodden and overlooked as a sought-after destination.

 

Today it is the thriving green heart of dynamic Downtown New York.  It is a model of conservation and biodiversity with vast public gardens, organic urban farms, toxin-free lawns and SeaGlass, the innovative aquarium carousel. It has set high standards in planning, design, construction and sustainable park management.
