Randall's Island Urban Farm, created as a result of the combined efforts of GrowNYC and the Randall's Island Park Alliance, is a one acre urban farm that aims to provide schools and groups who lack on-site or proximal open space with the experience of environmental education and nutritional learning by growing, harvesting, and eating farm-fresh produce.
The farm features 72 raised vegetable peds, four rice paddies, a chicken coop, and grows a wide array of produce, including lacinato kale, leek, purple and green broccoli, lettuce, beans, peppers, cucumbers, squash, several heirloom varieties of tomatoes, eggplant, artichokes, carrots, beets, beans, and corn.
