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 will not open for spring field trips until late February. 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!
Please note that all participants in programs at The Battery will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing during their visit to the park.
The Battery lawns may be closed during the winter to help the grass rejuvenate. There are covered bench areas inside Castle Clinton that can be used for eating lunch.
There are public restrooms in three locations throughout The Battery, which can be viewed on this map in relationship to farm entrance.
