The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, located in Brooklyn, New York, has been helping children learn all about growing flowers, vegetables, and herbs since 1914. Kids ages 2-7 can plant their own crops in late spring and then come back to harvest them in the fall.
The Discovery Garden allows kids to touch and smell plants and experience different habitats; woodland, meadow, farm, and wetland. Kids can also dig up worms at the Nature Center. And what kids doesn't like digging up worms?
The gardens are open year round. Admission for adults is $10.00. Children under 12 are free.
