large vegetable garden to walk thru. areas for children to participate "hands-on".
2 cooking demos were offered in the afternoon near the garden w chefs from mario batali's restaurant in nyc. we attended one of them.
pleasant afternoon at the gardens.
would have enjoyed seeing mario batali. he went to a seperately paid breakfast and left.
the other exhibits there were worthwhile.
