Riverpark Farm and our Community!
In addition to supplying Riverpark with fresh, seasonal produce each day, our team at Riverpark Farm has proudly grown into an active part of our local, dining and green-thumb communities. We feel strongly about supporting our communities and are excited to continue sharing the farm as a learning resource through farm tours, school visits and free weekend planting workshops. See below for more information and we look forward to welcoming you to the farm.
Weekly Farm Tours (Beginning May 5, 2015)
We host weekly farm tours every Tuesday at 12:30pm, from May through October. The tours are free and open to the public—all you have to do is show up!
School Visits and Group Tours
If you’re interested in bringing a group to the farm for a class field trip or private tour, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For urban gardeners looking to learn new skills, or friends of the farm who just want to get involved, we offer hands-on planting workshops on select Saturdays covering different container gardening skills. All workshops begin at 9:30am and end around 12:30pm. If you’re interested in joining us, please email email@example.com to reserve a spot.
2015 Workshop Schedule Coming Soon!
Thanks for visiting!
We’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many new friends: from preschoolers to victory gardeners, neighbors at NYU, Bellevue and the Churchill School to international visitors from Norway, Japan, Manchester, Chile, The Netherlands and Germany. We’ve made fresh farm salads with Wellness in the Schools and Read a Recipe for Literacy, and made plant-to-plate connections with The Mandell School, PS 134, The International School of Brooklyn, BK Farmyards Go Green high school class, Eagle Street Rooftop Farm apprentices, Lower East Side Ecology interns, TED: Breaker Project, Brooklyn College and CUNY City Tech students (classes from both BK and Paris)—and with also our fellow industry colleagues from the Brooklyn Grange, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, Four Seasons Farm, Randalls Island Park, GrowNYC, AvroKo Hospitality Group, Momofuku and ABC Kitchen.
