Founder's Tour - Brooklyn Navy Yard

  • Brooklyn Grange Clinton Ave. & Flushing Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11205 (map)

Event Description

Enjoy a Founder's Tour lead by Co-Founder, Vice President, and resident storyteller, 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. This tour is perfect for those with a keen curiosity about the business aspects of Brooklyn Grange and rooftop farming, or who want to hear a first person account of the farm's genesis and operations. Join us and get the real dirt on Brooklyn Grange!

This access is intended for individuals, families and groups of four or fewer.  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 will not be permitted into the Yard unattended, so please be on time.  The tour will last about 45 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).
