Don’t miss this annual family-fun tradition… on its new fall date! Feast on a delicious picnic designed by culinary master and Garden Board member Chef Mario Batali. Spend the day enjoying live music, food and beverage sampling, hands-on gardening activities, face painting, tree climbing, and crafts. Take a seat as Chef Batali returns to the stage for an exciting cooking demonstration with Carla Hall, his co-host from ABC’s The Chew. Then join a reception hosted by the Edible Academy Family Garden Picnic Chairmen with Mario and Carla featuring seasonal hors d’oeuvres. All proceeds benefit The New York Botanical Garden’s Edible Academy, hub of the children’s vegetable gardening program.
The Edible Academy, and its planned state-of-the-art facility, will signifi cantly expand the edible gardening program opportunities, so that twice as many children, parents, and teachers (from 40,000 to 80,000) can learn how to grow fruits and vegetables, as well as make the important connections among plants, gardening, nutrition, and the benefits of a healthful lifestyle.
