Groundwork Hudson Valley Science Barge is a prototype sustainable urban farm. The Science Barge greenhouse, floating on the Hudson River, grows an abundance of fresh produce including tomatoes, melons, popcorn, peppers, eggplant, and lettuce with zero net carbon emissions, zero pesticides, and zero runoff.
We train, employ, and mentor hundreds of kids each year through a year-round program that includes summer jobs and after-school employment, internships, school-based education, and post-high school workforce development.
