Guided Farm Tour for Elementary, Middle, and High School Groups

Description

Come for a guided tour of The Battery Urban Farm to learn more about how we grow fresh produce in the heart of downtown New York City. Students will explore the plants, creatures, and cycles that make up our local ecology, and will have a chance to taste fresh produce! Please note that group size is limited due to COVID-19 guidelines, and we ask that all visitors wear masks while on site.

The Battery Urban Farm

The Battery Urban Farm, a project of The Battery Conservancy, is an educational farm where, since 2011, New York City’s students, residents, and visitors have learned about their role as environmental stewards, along with sustainable farming techniques and the joys of tasting new foods. In 2015 we opened our Forest Farm, an enchanted forest of primarily native plants with a focus on edible and medicinal plants.

Our programming has shifted this season in response to COVID-19 and the need for social distancing. This winter, we are offering materials and support for groups interested in taking self-guided tours of the park. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page to see available Field Trips. If you're having trouble finding them, refresh the page and try again.

Please note that registration for spring trips opens in February, for summer trips opens in June, and for fall trips opens in August. If you do not see a time slot that works for you, please reach out through e-mail, or join our waitlist to be alerted when registration opens each season. We will do our best to accommodate you!
