AGRICULTURAL SCIENTIST’S APPRENTICE

Sunday, June 2, 2019
1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

What do you get when you merge farming with technology? Skip the outdoors and the soil. Grab water, a computer, and head indoors to grow your produce exactly as crunchy or spicy as you like. Join Bowery Farming’s Head of Agricultural Science, Susan MacIsaac, to learn about this new technology and its potential to feed a growing population while using 95% less water and yielding 100x more than traditional agriculture. Get your green thumb ready to create your own mini hydroponic farm in a bottle to take home.

Please note: This program involves interaction with various produce, including taste-testing of Bowery Farming products.

A student-only program for kids currently enrolled in grades 5-8. Parents/Guardians should drop off their children for this event.

Supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
