Tour the student farm to see what is growing and visit the animals from the Cook Animal Farm who will be visiting the Gardens for the day. Be sure to visit the Log Cabin area where you can meet the Youth Programs staff. While there you can paint a pumpkin ($4), check out the food and plant discovery tables and create fall crafts.
