Give city kids a chance to get their hands dirty and explore lush landscapes on this 250-acre expanse. Family programs educate kids (and adults) on our connection to nature, while the Edible Academy teaches children about gardening and healthy living through workshops, scavenger hunts and crafts in the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden. Celebrity chef Mario Batali helps youngsters get acquainted with the food on their plates via cooking demos, family dinners and picnic using homegrown ingredients. From spring through the end of autumn, kids can explore nature in Dig! Plant! Grow! gadening workshops, and though the beds are covered during winter, there's still plenty of family fun on the grounds, including the holiday train show in the conservatory (Nov 15–Jan 19) and the magnificent orchid show, come February.
