E-I-E-I-O The First 5BBC Urban Farm Ride

Saturday, September 6, 2014 - 09:00

 

Join us for an urban adventure!   Do you know there are farms all over New York City?  Visit 4 farms in 3 different boroughs (what Borough is Randall’s Island in, anyway?); cross 4 bridges; and end with a BBQ and a celebratory ribbon cutting.

Starting in Manhattan, we will visit Randall’s Island’s Urban Farm; Manhattan’s Riverpark Farm; Red Hook’s Added Value; and then end in Long Island City at the Smiling Hogshead Ranch.

 

Further, we will be joined by Gil Lopez, one of the leaders of Smiling Hogshead Ranch and we'll be at the Ranch to celebrate as the Ranch becomes a sanctioned urban farm.  Gil is expert at urban growing and will be able to guide us through each farm and the different growing methods employed.

 

Length:  30 miles; bring food (lunch will be late), plenty of water, sunscreen, a lock, and $$s for the BBQ lunch (burgers, veggies, etc.).

CHECK HERE SATURDAY MORNING; WE ARE MONITORING THE WEATHER; AT 8AM, ANY CHANGE WILL BE POSTED.
