Edible Garden: Learn, Grow, Cook, Eat at NY Botanical Garden

Ariel Handelman over at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx let me know about this year's EDIBLE GARDEN exhibit -- a garden-wide exhibit featuring local and seasonal foods. I gather the inaugural garden in 2009 was a huge success so they are repeating the exhibit this year.

A combination of festivals, classes, chef demos demos, gardens throughout the 250-acre setting and more from June 19 to October 17:

Here are Some Highlights:

CLASSES on WEEKDAYS through October
Cooking for Kids
Cooking for your Health
Cooking Seasonally

Culinary herbs -- featuring Martha Stewart's garden
Children's Garden
Global Family Garden

Fiesta de Flores y Comida, a celebration of Latin American and Caribbean food, on September 25 and 26
Family Harvest (Columbus Day Weekend), on October 9, 10, and 11
Fall Finale, October 16 and 17

Each weekend The Edible Garden will feature cooking demonstrations by chefs such as Keith Snow, Rick Bayles and Peter Hoffman and food blogger Cathy Erway in the Conservatory Kitchen with seasonal ingredients.
