An early 19th Century American household would have used the harvest of their garden to feed the family during the long winter months. But preserved foods lacked the nutrients of fresh crops. The first green edible things of Spring were a real cause for celebration. Join Boscobel's Museum Educator Lisa DiMarzo and expert gardener Matthew Weigman in the Herb Garden as they find and prepare Ramps, the harbingers of the new growing season. To this day traditional communities enjoy festivals centered around the Ramp or Wild Leek whose minerals and vitamins act as a tonic to put an end to ailments and boost health after long Winter months without fresh vegetables.

  • The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is the last farmhouse in Manhattan, perched above Broadway at 204th Street. The Dutch Colonial style farmhouse was built on this site c. 1784. Opened as a museum in 1916, today it is nestled in a small garden and is an extraordinary reminder of early Manhattan and an important part of its diverse Inwood neighborhood.

    The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is owned by the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and is a member of The Historic House Trust of New York City. The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum Alliance (DFMA) was formed to help raise crucial funds to ensure the continued preservation of this amazing historic site.

    The mission of DFMA is to support the preservation of the historic site, to be a catalyst for engaging, adventuresome programming, and to be a good neighbor and a dynamic resource for the community.
