Event description
Outdoor Environmental Education in GrowNYC's Teaching Garden!

About this event

Programming:

We know that distance learning can be hard and we want to give students a chance to get outside! We are inviting small groups of caretakers and their students to the Teaching Garden for socially distant environmental education programming. Students grades k-12 of all abilities are welcome to attend! Programming will include a 20-30 minute tour of the garden, about 30 minutes of staff supervised hands-on activity time, and an optional additional 30 minutes of guardian supervised activity time. The farm tour will be age-appropriate and highlight sustainable infrastructure, organic practices, and will include a chance to pick a few herbs, flowers, or vegetables to take home to taste and smell later with ample time for questions. The hands-on portion consists of a few activities to choose from including compost exploration, rainwater harvesting and watering, nature art, or seeding, weeding, or planting depending on the needs of the garden at that time. For questions or concerns email ebrown@grownyc.org or call 646-740-1365.

Logistics:

Participants (and staff) are required to wear a mask for the entire duration of the program. Students must attend with an adult chaperone (chaperones may bring a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 12 students). To visit the island you must reserve a spot on the ferry by following this link (https://govisland.com/visit-the-island/ferry). Catch the ferry to Governors Island at the Battery Maritime Building in Manhattan (10 South St. New York, NY 10004). To reserve a space for our programming, order a ticket for each individual attending (including guardians or caregivers!).
