What We Do
City Growers is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization based in New York City. Rooted in experiential learning theory, our programs use urban agriculture to close fundamental gaps in the experiences of city kids: exploration of the natural world and understanding of where our food comes from.
From field trips to after school, City Growers’ programs engage thousands of kids in farm-based learning each year through our hands-on farm workshops at Brooklyn Grange rooftop farms, summer camps, school garden residencies, after school programs, summer internships, and ecology workshops. Our annual City Growers Education Conference brings garden- and farm-based educators together to share best practices in the field. City Growers is committed to providing and expanding access to experiential environmental and food education to kids in New York City and beyond.
