Volunteer Days & Free Saturday Workshops

Our FREE community workshops cover everything from common garden techniques to healthy cooking to food justice. Every workshop takes place on a volunteer day - come work on the farm in the morning, then stick around for the free workshop! 

Urban Farm Training Program

Our Urban Farm Training Program is an intensive, 20-hr. per week training program designed to train working/urban participants in the ins and outs of urban agriculture. The program provides participants with the skill and practice to run their own urban farm or garden, or integrate farm-based learning into a variety of programs.

School Garden & Garden-Based Education Training

We offer workshops on basic gardening in NYC from seeds starting to planting garlic, as well as tailored workshops for groups wanting professional development.
