This is one of the best tours I have ever taken my kids on. It would even be great for adults and just an evening event. Kids got to see a farm in the middle of Manhattan and reinforce the science fundamentals taught in school. My daughter came away understanding photosynthesis better because it isn’t a traditional diet farm. Adults loved the tour cause it is an opportunity to widen your culinary palate by tasting all these specialty herbs This was a great tour that I would recommend over any other culinary tour in the city.
