Urban Farmer’s Apprentice

Saturday, June 3, 2017
10:00 am - 11:00 am

Forget the pitchfork and the fishing rod…we’re farming in NYC! Join Yemi Amu, co-founder of OKO Farms in Bushwick, Brooklyn, to learn how to raise fish and grow plants in the same environment. Plant your own seedlings, feed some fish, and tour a farm like no other. Build your own mini aquaponic system and conduct experiments to convert fish waste into nutrients for plants — just like our oceans do naturally every day.

This is a student-only program for kids currently enrolled in the 4th grade – 8th grade. Parents/Guardians should drop off their children for this event.

Supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
