Battery Urban Farm, an educational project of The Battery Conservancy, is the first farm on this site since the Dutch planted theirs in 1625. Now in its third season, Battery Urban Farm is engaging elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as local community groups and individuals, in a hands-on experience of organic farming on one acre of parkland. Our vegetables, herbs, and cut flowers are donated to school cafeterias and used in our summer Farm Share.
