Support the Edible Academy
Make a donation to our Edible Academy initiative in support of programs that will teach thousands of kids, parents, and teachers all year long.
The Edible Academy is a state-of-the-art educational facility featuring hands-on activities and innovative programs that help children, families, teachers, and the general public learn about growing and preparing vegetables, fruit, and herbs while encouraging a lifelong interest in gardening, nutrition awareness, and environmental stewardship. With the site’s combination of indoor and outdoor spaces—featuring the Ruth Rea Howell Vegetable Garden as its centerpiece—NYBG is able to operate its acclaimed, 62-year-old garden-based education program year-round and double its prior capacity.
Sustainable infrastructure throughout the expanded three-acre campus supports maximum resource efficiency (water and energy) and active stormwater management. The 5,300-sq.-ft. Classroom Building, featuring a Demonstration Kitchen, Technology Lab, and Green Roof, was recently certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Buildings Council.
