Edible Season at the Atlanta Botanical Garden

Written by Emily Anne Jackson 

Summer is the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Edible Season, meaning mouth-watering fruits, veggies and herbs are ripe for the picking and a venerable buffet of cooking classes are ripe for the taking at the Edible Garden Outdoor Kitchen. On Thursday nights and weekend afternoons until September, watch the Garden Chef demonstrating how to generate flavorful dishes with fresh, seasonal ingredients, free with admission. Additional Edible Garden events include the Well-Seasoned Chef Series and the Fresh Plates Series. During the Well-Seasoned Chef Series, guests can enjoy a four-part, produce-centric small plate menu prepared by Atlanta’s best farm-to-table chefs with plants harvested from the Edible Garden. The Fresh Plate Series presents a four-part small plate menu of neighborhood favorites. Learn how to make the food you love from restaurants where you’re a regular.
