The Battery Urban Farm is an educational farm where New York City’s students, residents, and visitors learn about sustainable farming techniques, the joys of tasting new foods, and their role as environmental stewards. The farm was started in 2011 by The Battery Conservancy in partnership with the Environmental Club at Millennium High School. Since then we’ve had thousands of students and community volunteers help us grow thousands of pounds of vegetables, fruits, herbs, grains, and flowers.
