Sensational Seeds Weekend

October 8–10, 2022

12–5 p.m. | At the Garden

A single seed can tell many stories, from the promise of fruits or vegetables to come to a long history of care and cultivation. Learn and explore these stories during a weekend of adventures in our Edible Academy, where you’ll join chefs and gardeners to dig in with hands-on gardening, cooking demonstrations, seed crafts, and so much more.
