The Edible Garden is located within the children’s programming and activity area. Four large planter boxes contain the edible plants and provide an exhibit of a wide variety of vegetables and herbs that can be viewed and sampled.
In the Children’s Garden Programs, we learn about the parts of a plant, i.e. roots, stems, leaves, and flowers, and the different parts we eat of certain edible plants e.g. carrots – roots, lettuce – leaves, and broccoli – florets. In the Older Adults Garden Herbs Program we explore a selection of herbs, smell, taste, reminisce and discuss how these herbs can be used, grown and harvested.
