OUR FIRST OPEN HOUSE OF THE SEASON WILL BE ON MAY 12TH, 2018. Every Saturday May through October we host an open house at our Flagship farm in Long Island City, Queens (directions are here). There's no need to register in advance and no charge–just come on by between 11am and 4pm, and you can visit the chickens, buy some farm-fresh produce, get your hands dirty alongside our farm team, or simply enjoy the fresh air! Families be sure to visit on a Family Farm Day, the third Saturday of every month, when City Growers hosts its FREE family-friendly workshops and children’s activities!

Wednesdays at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, 10AM & 11:30AM and Saturdays at Long Island City, 11AM & 12:30PM Tours must be booked in advance, and cost $15 per person.

VISITS FOR K-12 AGE YOUTH
WEEKLY, APRIL - NOVEMBER
BROOKLYN NAVY YARD & LONG ISLAND CITY
Youth programming at the farm is available through City Growers, a registered 501c3 non-profit dedicated to connecting urban communities with agriculture, food and environment through educational farm explorations. If you are seeking to bring a school or youth group to the farm, please CLICK HERE to request a visit with their amazing team of educators!
Workshops take place several times each month at our Brooklyn Farm. Check out our Events Calendar, and grab a seat at the table to learn a new skill; a natural dye artist will show you how to create the perfect color from plants growing along NYC sidewalks. Or, perhaps it’s a Brooklyn Beekeeper who’ll inspire a new hobby. We bring in a rotating roster of our favorite innovative instructors who teach our core workshops throughout the year; Intro to Urban Agriculture, Beekeeping, Mushroom Cultivation and Floral Design are always popping up on the calendar, among others!
MONDAY EVENING YOGA
WEEKLY, JUNE - SEPTEMBER
BROOKLYN NAVY YARD
Yoga takes place each Monday staring in June from 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM. Sarah Schumann of Prospect Heights’ Shambhala Yoga and Dance Center leads a 60 minute, all levels asana (yoga postures) practice. Each class will begin with a brief centering, a collection of ourselves in breath and space, and will gently evolve into a flow of movement and meditation. In community, we’ll move, breathe and connect to our inner and outer landscapes. Classes are limited to 30 people and advance reservations are strongly recommended unless you have purchased a six-pack class pass. Drop-ins may be turned away upon arrival if classes are full. We do not provide mats. More information can be found on the events calendar. ALL CLASSES TAKE PLACE RAIN OR SHINE.
From our multi-course vegetarian feast, Veggiepalooza, to our annual Tomato Dinner, to the celebrated Butcher Paper Dinners in Long Island City - dining at one of our summer dinners is one of the best–and most delicious–ways to visit the farm. Tickets for dinners go fast so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to find out when tickets go live (Hint: it's usually mid-April)!
