As part of a garden-based educational expansion, The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) has announced the opening of a new “Edible Academy.”

The Edible Academy, which takes place on an indoor/outdoor campus designed by architecture firm Cooper Robertson, features a 5,300-square-foot classroom building (that houses a high-tech classroom and demonstration kitchen) and a teaching greenhouse as well as a tiered amphitheater which can accommodate up to 350. The Academy will also include two outdoor pavilions, one of which is situated at treetop level and provides views of the Bronx River and the Garden’s forest.

The addition of The Academy will allow NYBG’s edible gardening program to educate nearly 100,000 guests, including children, families, teachers and the general public, annually. Visitors can participate in a range of year-round workshops, courses, camps and hands-on activities focused on topics ranging from art to culinary sciences to sustainability.
