We will start at one of our six urban farms, at Forest Houses in the Bronx, visit our Manhattan site at Wagner Houses along the way, and end at one of our graduate’s own composting sites in Williamsburg along the waterfront for a celebration! Attendees will be able to meet our Service Coordinators, Farm Managers, Corps Members and Eco-Hub Fellows who operate each site, and alumni of our program!

Reusable water bottles, refreshments and food along the way will be provided.

Bike and helmet rentals will be available upon registration for pick up at GCF's Forest Houses Farm and drop off in Williamsburg. Please select YES if you need a bike/helmet rental! 

This is a casually-paced ride - not a race from farm to farm. We will stick to bicycle lanes and routes wherever possible. We will obey all traffic laws. This is an unsupported ride on open streets. Riders should feel comfortable riding throughout the city and with a group.

The ride is free for Forest + Wagner NYCHA Houses residents and GCF graduates. Please check your emails for your promo code to access the ride for free.
