As our early bird discount comes to a close this Saturday, March 15th (there is still time to save 10% off camp tuition), our camp planning is in full swing!
Our most recently booked trip is to the magical Battery Urban Farm (BUF), a one acre farm oasis in the center of the financial district.
According to BUF, they are home to over 100 varieties of organically-grown vegetables, fruits, flowers, grains, and companion plants – even a wild turkey!
In 2012 alone, they hosted 1,800 students at 30 schools and community organizations!
In collaboration with Grow to Learn, BUF is registered to participate in the Garden to School Cafe program, where they partner with schools, and host them on the farm to harvest vegetables for inclusion in their school lunches, while also providing them with farm and nutrition education.
We can’t wait to visit our friends again at the BUF this summer!
