While gardening in The Battery’s 240,000 sq ft of perennials, we found 12 native bee species and thriving pollinators including butterflies, dragonflies, moths, and flies. In a time when biodiversity of public green space is critical to the health and wellbeing of urban life, our annual Battery Gardeners’ Luncheon celebrates native bees and pollinators who maintain and transform our plant paradise of 25 acres.
Please join us for The Battery Gardeners’ Luncheon
Wednesday September 27th, 2023
11AM – Cocktails and tours of The Battery Labyrinth Gardens
Noon – Lunch in The Bosque Gardens
The well regarded bee biologist, Sarah Kornbluth, will share her knowledge, research, and guidance to support and care for the native pollinators at The Battery and in your garden. In her capacity as Field Associate at The American Museum of Natural History, Sarah conducts ecological research and surveys to examine and compare bee communities and explore habitat management regimes.
During cocktails we invite you to explore the forest farm and contemplative gardens of The Battery Labyrinth followed by lunch in The Battery Bosque Gardens.
100% of the gardening budget is funded by donations to the Battery Gardeners’ Luncheon.
