The Edible Garden at NYBG

The New York Botanical Garden will host Slow Food USA President Josh Viertel as part of their series “Edible Evenings: A Celebration of Wine, Beer, and Food”. The event, Preserving America’s Food Traditions, will be held on Thursday, August 20th from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.

Tickets are $20.00 for non-members; $10.00 for members and includes admission to all exhibitions until 8:00 PM. Seating is first-come, first-served.

Good news for anyone who lives in NYC and doesn’t have a car (like me). Getting to the Garden is really easy; from Grand Central take the Metro-North Harlem local to the Botanical Garden Station. Cross the street and you’re there. It takes about 20 minutes.

If you can’t make it on the 20th, check the NYBG website for other events to attend. Edible Evenings is just one of many offerings at the Edible Garden exhibition, a summer-long look into how to grow and serve your own home-grown food.
