What Part of a Plant Do You Eat?
Stroll through the Farm Garden to observe growing vegetables. Pick up a guide sheet at the farm front desk to decide which part of the plant we eat --- stems, flowers, roots, leaves, or seeds? Yum!
Aullwood Trail Adventures
We have added almost two miles of farm trails to explore! Pick up an updated map at the farm or at https://aullwood.audubon.org/trailmap and get ready for adventure!
