This Summer at the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden join us at the kids’ table to connect with the plants that we eat. Explainers will invite families to reminisce about their favorite food stories; investigate the edible plants growing in the Children’s Garden; pretend to cook up a meal in our Plant Part Paradise Playhouse and serve it to family and friends; and pot a seed to start your own windowsill garden at home.

This summer’s Story Walk showcases local author Tony Hillery’s children’s book Harlem Grown (Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books, 2020), about a community garden started with schoolchildren in an empty lot in Harlem, New York that has grown into a network of gardens throughout the city since 2011.
