The Battery Urban Farm is an educational farm where New York City’s students, residents, and visitors experience sustainable farming, enjoy tasting organic fresh foods, and learn environmental stewardship. The farm was developed in 2011 by The Battery Conservancy in response to a request for a vegetable garden by eight students from neighboring Millennium High School. From those eight students, we now engage over 5000 students from over 100 schools and community volunteers who annually grow thousands of pounds of vegetables, fruits, herbs, grains, and flowers.
Running along the perimeter of the park amid The Battery’s gardens, it connects the Hudson River Park Bikeway to the East River Esplanade. It is the crucial link in the 31-mile loop that encircles Manhattan.
Castle Clinton and twenty other monuments celebrate the rich history of New York and the nation. The centerpiece of the Conservancy’s revitalization efforts, The Castle has played dynamic roles through its 200-year lifetime.
