Cooking demonstrations, presented by Whole Foods Market®, encourage families to get hands-on with healthy cooking. New recipes featuring plants grown in the Edible Academy are offered each week. Edible Academy staff will demonstrate family-friendly recipes using seasonal vegetables, fruits, and herbs. Kids and adults alike will learn how garden-to-table cooking is not only nutritious, but fun, too.
