Open House at Greenhouse & Kitchen Garden

June 16, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Come join The Horticultural Society of New York and The Burpee Foundation for an open house at the NYdigs Greenhouse & Kitchen Garden. Located at Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park, this free event runs from 10am – 1pm and will showcase vegetables, fruits, and herbs! Consortium chefs Jillian Naveh and Annette Nielsen will be whipping up local fruit inspired confections including fruit tartlets, crepes with fresh strawberries and maple whipped cream and cream scones with fruit preserves. While you visit, take a tour of the greenhouse or hop on the smoothie bike and switch into high gear to blend your own green drink or bring on summertime with freshly-picked berries baked into delicious treats the whole family will love! You can discover new tastes, textures and smells with herbal plants grown in our greenhouse – plant a seed to take home, too! Everyone has a chance to win in the free raffle at 12pm. Additionally, The greenhouse will be open for the community to view the collection of tropical, subtropical, and temperate plants. Additional activities include health screenings from New York Presbyterian and garden meditation with the Shinnyo Center. Gardeners, from first-timers to seasoned green thumbs, will have an opportunity to get their questions answered by horticulture experts from The Hort and The Burpee Company.
