WORKSHOPS

Brooklyn Grange is nestled in the heart of an incredible community of makers, producers, and students in New York City, and we offer workshops year-round on topics in food, farming, wellness, sustainability, business, and beyond.

TICKETED WORKSHOPS
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! Brooklyn Grange is committed to making sure all members of our community can attend workshops regardless of income level. Please see more info on our new scholarship program.

PRIVATE WORKSHOPS
Almost any of our workshops can be reserved for private groups, parties, and corporate outings.  Schedule is based on instructor availability but with plenty of notice we try to accommodate all requests. These workshops are a great option for bridal and baby showers, birthdays, corporate team building outings, and any occasion where you’re looking to get out in the city to do something new! To inquire about booking a private workshop, email events@brooklyngrangefarm.com

BEEKEEPING APPRENTICESHIP
Now in it's 7th year, the beekeeping apprenticeship program takes students from the very beginning of the process with building hives and installing brand new packages of bees, straight through to harvesting honey and preparing for winter. Students will start and tend multiple hives for the duration of the season.  Most sessions are 3 hours long, with both apiary time and classroom time involved.  Each student will have course-long access to: veil, gloves, hive tool, and smoker. Text book is included in tuition.
