On Sunday, September 25th, the New York Botanical Garden hosted The Edible Academy Family Garden Picnic. The Family Garden Picnic introduces families to NYBG’s Edible Academy. Attendees directly supported this new initiative to promote nutrition and the benefits of a healthful lifestyle which will serve twice as many children, parents and teachers (from 50,000 to 100,000). The state-of-the-art complex will feature an LEED-certified, environmentally sustainable building with a green roof, two high-tech classrooms, new display gardens, a teaching greenhouse and a terraced amphitheater. The picnic guests shared in the fun with games, hands-on activities and culinary workshops with special guest Chef Carla Hall.
