The Urban Farm occupies one full acre of the Battery’s verdant parkland at the southernmost tip of Manhattan — along State Street at Pearl Street — and will be in operation for two years until construction begins on the Battery Garden Bikeway connecting the East and West Sides of Manhattan. It originated with a request from students of Millennium High School’s Environmental Club to plant a vegetable garden in the park. It led to a farming initiative that now includes eight schools with over 650 students participating. Produced by Adrian Sas
