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.
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 scroll down for more info on our new scholarship program.

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 email@example.com
Each year Brooklyn Grange hosts a beekeeping apprenticeship program in partnership with Carin Zinter of C&C orchards. The 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. The 2018 class is full.
Whenever possible, Brooklyn Grange will be making 1-2 seats available to workshops and lectures for free or at cost to low income members of our community. If you know an organization or an individual who might be well served by this program, please tell them to reach out to us via email at Events@BrooklynGrangeFarm.com. Brooklyn Grange recognizes that everyone’s situation is unique and we understand that there are circumstances beyond income, but please consider that we have our own bottom line to hit, and an ecosystem whose health depends on the financial sustainability of our organization. Please consider your privilege (ie. education, generational wealth, parental and community support, partnership status and other circumstances that may offer you a safety net which allows more resilience when financial setbacks occur)* before reaching out. Note that we we may ask for proof of income before we are able to make a determination of eligibility.
