The Edible Academy, with the Ruth Rea Howell Vegetable Garden as its centerpiece, is a state-of-the-art facility for education, hands-on activities, and programs that helps children, families, teachers, and the general public learn about growing and preparing vegetables, fruit, and herbs while encouraging a lifelong interest in gardening and healthy living.
The expanded three-acre campus features a classroom building with a green roof, demonstration kitchen, and technology lab; a teaching greenhouse; a solar pavilion; and a terraced amphitheater, as well as new display gardens, to accommodate a broader range of programs and double the number of people served each year.
The Edible Academy provides plenty of fun for kids and adults alike, with daily, hands-on gardening activities; special cooking demonstrations; and other year-round program offerings that enhance NYBG’s reach and impact.
