In 2014, Brooklyn Botanic Garden marks the centennial of its pioneering Children’s Garden. BBG was the first botanic garden to create a program exclusively for children—where toddlers to teens are participants, not just spectators, in community horticulture, plant science, and healthy eating. Here children sow, tend, and harvest their own crops and flowers and learn valuable lessons about responsibility, cooperation, and the importance of plants in our lives. This experience has sparked a lifetime of curiosity about nature and devotion to the environment for generations of local families.
