SUSTAINABLE FARMING: AGRICULTURAL SCIENTIST’S APPRENTICE

Sunday, June 2, 2019
10:30 am - 11:45 am

You don’t need a farm to grow your food. NYC will do just fine. Join Melissa Metrick of the NYU Urban Farm Lab to test out the sustainable agriculture research happening right here in the Big Apple. Learn about growing regional grains, and take the cutting edge first steps on planting to get carbon to stay in the ground. You’ll be on the right path to develop new science for a more sustainable food system.

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.
