Children dressed as garden faeries will skip, run and dance through Bernheim’s Edible Garden marking the grand opening of Bernheim’s new living laboratory at BloomFest on May 17.
“Because gardening is the most popular pastime in America, our Edible Garden will serve as a gateway to understanding the value of the larger natural world,”
Dr. Mark Wourms, Bernheim Executive Director.
