Don’t Miss the Children’s Garden!

Here at the Grand, we’re interested in helping kids make connections between the food on their table and the earth and farms from which it comes. While visiting our Market, please stop by the weekly children’s garden. Located off of Lawton Street behind the library (we usually try to mark the way with signage and chalk arrows on the sidewalk), this shady oasis provides children an opportunity to plant a seedling, pick a radish or taste a fresh-off-the-vine sweet pea, under the friendly guidance of a dedicated children’s gardening specialist Jeanne-Marie Healy.

A special project of the New Rochelle Public Library, the Children’s Garden is open weekly from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.
