The Battery Urban Farm was started in 2011 by The Battery Conservancy in partnership with the Environmental Club at Millennium High School. It is an educational farm where New York City’s students, residents, and visitors learn about sustainable farming techniques, the joys of tasting new foods, and their role as environmental stewards.
