CITY GROWERS: connecting urban youth with agriculture, food and environment through farm education and advocacy in order to foster a culture of health and sustainability.
City Growersis a non-profit educational organization based at Brooklyn Grange, a one-acre rooftop farm in New York City. The organization’s mission is to coordinate and facilitate school and camp visits that engage young New Yorkers in educational tours and workshops on the farm and in the classroom. City Growers gives students the opportunity to visit a working urban farm, learn about food and the environment, and connect with soil and plants right here in their home city. Educational programming at this unique and inspirational greenroof farm setting empowers children and young adults to envision a greener and healthier future for their city.
