Visit The Battery’s perennial gardens and explore the gardening practices and plants we use to support various pollinator populations. Learn how to identify different beneficial pollinators at different stages of their life cycle and get resources to help you improve the health of your own perennial gardens.
RSVP is required; registrations will be open one month before the event.
PLEASE NOTE that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are requiring all participants to wear face masks that cover their nose and mouth when on the farm.
Location: Meet at the entrance to Battery Urban Farm, shown on this map. (Directions: enter the park on State Street and Broadway near the 4/5 Main House or the Netherlands Memorial Flag Pole: go around the left side of Battery Oval Lawn towards the Harbor. the farm is located on the left side just after the cycle path.)
