Take a Virtual Trip to the Teaching Garden!
We created a virtual field trip to the GrowNYC Teaching Garden on Governors Island! Below are age appropriate videos that focus on plant parts (for grades k-5) and regenerative agriculture (for grades 6-12). Below each virtual field trip video we also have photos with links to videos where students can learn more.
The GrowNYC Teaching Garden at Governors Island features over 20 vegetable beds made from recycled plastic lumber, farm-style rows, an aquaponics system, an outdoor kitchen, a greenhouse, a high tunnel hoophouse, fruit trees, several rainwater harvesting systems, a rain garden, and much much more.
You can find info about booking an in-person field trip or visiting during open public hours here.
