Food, Fun, and Farming

Blue Star Parks partners with Heroic Food for Food, Fun, and Farming on May 26, 10am-2pm. Veteran/Military families can meet the farmers behind the farm-to-table movement. 

Get a guided tour of the Tribeca Greenmarket, lunch in the park, a workshop, and activity aboard the USCGC LILAC, America’s only surviving steam-powered lighthouse tender. Learn about the farms, what they grow, how they grow it, and why fresh food matters with Heroic Food, Blue Star Families, and GrowNYC.

The first 25 military families to show up at the event will receive a stuffed Buddy Bison and a plant pot kit complete with seeds. The workshop is free for veterans and their family members.
