Edible Academy Tour

Take a behind-the-scenes tour of The New York Botanical Garden’s newly opened Edible Academy, a three-acre educational facility designed and constructed to LEED Gold rating level for water and energy efficiency and stormwater management.

Learn about the site’s sustainable infrastructure systems and the campus’s state-of-the-art green components, which include a classroom building with a green roof, technology lab, demonstration kitchen, and composting toilets; teaching greenhouse and plant nursery; solar pavilion with photovoltaic panels; as well as outdoor gardens and a terraced amphitheater.

Explore the innovative programs that teach children, families, and educators how to grow and prepare vegetables, fruit, and herbs while encouraging a lifelong interest in nutrition awareness and environmental stewardship.
