Kids channel their innate curiosity and creativity and as they learn about the native plants of Brazil and become inspired plant lovers and designer-artists like Burle Marx: in the Children’s Adventure Garden, they can start their own indoor garden by potting up a fantastic philodendron plant, design a playful sculpture inspired by the bold colors and geometric shapes used by Burle Marx, and compare plants growing in the Bronx and Brazil to understand more about plant diversity.
