From our organizers:
The Horts NYdigs Greenhouse & Kitchen Program and The Burpee Foundation are proud to announce an open house at the brand new greenhouse in Denny Farrell Riverbank State Park. This free event will run from 10am – 1pm and will educate New Yorkers about the benefits of growing and eating vegetables, fruits, and herbs.
Enjoy our free activities including hopping on a smoothie bike to blend your own organic green drink, tasting delicious treats made from freshly picked berries, and planting a seed to take home in the vegetable-filled greenhouse. Attendees can enter a free raffle to win a Burpee garden starter kit!
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.
