RIVERPARK FARM

Riverpark Farm is one of the largest and most notable urban farms in New York City. Developed in partnership with the Alexandria Center® for Life Science, the entirely portable farm was built in the fall of 2012 using more than 7,000 milk crates. Riverpark Farm continues to supply fresh produce to the adjacent Riverpark restaurant and provides educational opportunities focused on sustainable, healthy eating for students in the local community.
