    Sign Up for a Full Day and Plant, Make, Eat and Learn About Food in the 1820s:  From the roots up, children spend the entire day  indoors and out digging, preparing food and enjoying Mother Earth and her products.  Children plant a Take Home Kitchen Garden with delicious herbs, make organic marshmallows from the roots of marshmallow plants, and create foods using Museum grown ingredients and recipes developed two centuries ago. All activities are conducted in the manner of 19th-century gardeners and cooks, using cookbooks and gardening manuals from the time.
