  • NYdigs

NYdigs operates out of the educational greenhouse and kitchen garden at Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park and other locations throughout the city. We host programs, conferences, and special events: from the art of making soap to the benefits of cooking with fresh vegetables, to our Urban Agriculture Conference. Programs and events are rooted in the Hort’s mission: cultivating the vital connection between people and plants.

Our NYdigs program offers lessons for school groups on Wednesday, Thursdays, and Fridays at the greenhouse and kitchen garden.
