The Edible Academy is a rich platform of education, hands-on activities, and programs that help children, families, and teachers learn about growing vegetables, fruits, and herbs while encouraging a lifelong interest in gardening and healthful living. The Edible Academy’s expansion is underway with the construction of a three-acre complex featuring a classroom building, greenhouse, and terraced amphitheater to accommodate a broader range of programs and double the number of people served each year.
