October 2 - Founder's Tour: Brooklyn Navy Yard

20.00

Sign up for a unique guided tour of our rooftop farm at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, led by Brooklyn Grange co-founder and author of The Farm on the Roof, Anastasia Cole Plakias! This tour will offer an opportunity to hear firsthand how the farm came to be, what the greatest benefits and challenges are to farming on rooftops, and how a few young entrepreneurs managed to create a fiscally sustainable urban agriculture business in one of the most competitive cities in the world. Join us and get the real dirt on Brooklyn Grange!

This experience is intended for individuals and groups of four or fewer; larger groups can register for a private tour here.  Pre-registration is required and unregistered guests will not be granted admission.  Please note our media/photo guidelines at bottom of the page.

Registrants for this tour will be sent a confirmation email containing directions to the farm the day before, along with a security pass that will grant access into the Navy Yard. Late arrivals may miss the tour, so please be on time.  The tour will last about 55 minutes, followed by a quick visit to our farm stand for honey or hot sauce before being escorted back down to the ground floor of our building. The tour will be offered rain or shine, so please dress appropriately (closed-toed shoes, sunscreen even in overcast weather, layers because it is often colder on the roof).
