Enjoy a 30-minute presentation from Annie Novak, a partner at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, experienced farmer and gardener, and the childrenâs gardening programming director at the New York Botanical Garden. Following the lecture, we'll put the instruction to use by working on the farm and planting herbs you'll carry home to grow in your own urban garden. After the workshop, participants can enjoy a meal at Anella, a nearby Italian and French trattoria, incorporating the spring produce from the Rooftop Farm.
