Kitchen in the Garden

An outdoor kitchen in the New Orleans Botanical Garden

Our new Kitchen in the Garden, an outdoor kitchen that will serve as a hub for food education and culinary training, is scheduled to open this Fall. 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.
