Drawing inspiration from books like The Carrot Seed and The Grouchy Ladybug, Storytime at The Battery will give children their first introduction to urban farming with activities like planting seeds, touching the soil, crafting, or tasting new and delicious herbs and vegetables.

Stories are geared toward children ages five to eight years old, but accessible for children ages three and older, so bring the whole family!

Free and open to the public.
