New York City doesn't usually bring "farms" to mind. However, within The Battery, a New York City park, an urban farm is bustling with staff and
volunteers of The Battery Conservancy who tend to the land and harvest its crops. But there's another "hidden helper" buzzing around... Bees! The
neighboring BeeVillage managed by The Bee Conservancy helps to pollinate the urban farm, resulting in a higher yield of crops. This produce is then donated for food relief in the community.
