The New York Botanical Garden - Children's Gardening Program

The Children’s Gardening Program offers the perfect way for kids to get outside and get their hands dirty. Guided by instructors, children plant, tend, and harvest fresh vegetables and herbs and learn about topics from pollination to composting. The program takes place in the Ruth Rea Howell Vegetable Garden, centerpiece of the Edible Academy. Each gardening season offers unique and engaging activities customized for kids ages 3–5 and 6–12. Visit the website to register for one or all three seasons by age group, and come grow with the New York Botanical Garden!
