Sunset yoga. Storytelling. And a great excuse to buy some extra treats on your next grocery run.
There is a LOT of great stuff happening at Battery Urban Farm over the next couple of weeks — don’t miss out! Here’s what’s new:
Battery Urban Farm Saturday: June 15
It’s that time again: monthly Saturdays at the farm! In addition to our regular volunteer hours and farmstand, this month we are thrilled to welcome Rebecca Pryor of The Moth and StoryCorps for Food Memories: The Go-To Steps for Crafting Your Story. Also on Saturday: the farm will host two dance performances of last days / first field from Jill Sigman / thinkdance!
Here’s the full day schedule:
- Volunteer hours: 10am-1pm
- Farmstand: noon-4pm
- Dance performances: noon, 2:30pm
- Workshop: 1pm
Join us on Wednesday, July 24th (previously June 19) from 5-7pm for an evening of yoga, farm-to-fork bites, and a garden happy hour!
This event features a 45-minute yoga lesson with Joulebody founder and certified yoga instructor/personal trainer Yvette Rose, followed by a tasting of juices and hors d’oeuvres (sourced from the farm) and a glass of local wine or beer at Table Green, overlooking the harbor.

Whole Foods Market 5% Day: June 27
Shop at Whole Foods on June 27 and you can support student farmers — simply by picking up your weekly groceries!
That’s right: On Thursday June 27, Whole Foods Market will donate 5% of all sales from all seven of their Manhattan stores to The Battery Conservancy — this is a huge deal, and a big honor.
