About this Event
Join us at The Battery Urban Farm for some projects for all ages in the vegetable farm. This is a fun and active event for families looking to get outside and get dirty! Farm staff will lead participants in the tasks needed to set up our farm for the spring – this could include planting, weeding, spreading mulch, harvesting, and more! No experience necessary. We recommend this event for ages 5 and up with adult supervision and participation; younger siblings are welcome. RSVP is required for this event, though you are welcome to arrive and leave at any time during the morning. Registration will open one month in advance of event.
PLEASE NOTE that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic we require all participants to wear masks covering nose and mouth while on the farm.
