Harvest Sips and Samples: A Fall Equinox Tour

Monday, September 23, 2019 at 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Pounder Vegetable Garden Cornell Botanic Gardens

Since the dawn of history, the Fall Equinox has been a time of harvest celebrations for cultures around the world. To honor this celestial event and the beginning of autumn, join us for a special “tasting tour” of our Pounder Vegetable Garden. We’ll learn about the Equinox itself, listen to some seasonal plant lore, and nibble on fresh vegetables as we walk through the garden beds. We’ll also learn about sustainable home vegetable gardening and sip local hard ciders. Participants must be 21 or older and able to show proof of age. Pre-registration required.
