Kitchen in the Garden

An outdoor kitchen in the New Orleans Botanical Garden

Our new outdoor Kitchen in the Garden serves as a hub for food education and culinary trainingl. Programming at this new facility will focus on nutrition and healthy living, composting, and environmental stewardship through hands-on gardening and cooking events and classes.  Fresh vegetables and herbs will be harvested straight from the Vegetable Garden and move directly to the Kitchen in the Garden for hands-on lessons that will offer a garden-to-table experience demonstrating the connection between gardening and healthy cooking while highlighting seasonal selections and local cuisines.
