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