New York Botanical Garden - Howell Family Garden


Pre-school & younger, Young elementary, Tween

$20; $8 children ages 2-12; free for children younger than 2

Description: Go on a Pickle Parade through the Family Garden to learn about plants - both familiar and unfamiliar - that take part in the pickling process. Learn what it takes to pickle and make your very own batch of pickles to savor back at home.

Cooking demonstrations at 2pm and 4pm on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays through August 16.

Plants and imaginations grow at the Howell Family Garden, where kids are allowed - no, encouraged! - to play in the dirt. Display gardens such as the Global Gardens and the Breakfast Bowl, and other daily activities, delight and inspire.
