Farm Tour & Tasting with Complimentary Wine & Gift Box
Thu, March 23, 2017, 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
Tour Manhattan's only indoor hydroponic farm, growing more than 50 varieties of rare herbs, edible flowers and microgreens. Sip complementary sparking wine as you taste new and unique flavors from around the world.
Inside the Institute of Culinary Education, conveniently located downtown, our unique farm uses LED lighting and hydroponics to grow a huge variety of culinary plants, numbering over 200 to date. The indoor grow room uses no pesticides or herbicides, and uses around 95% less water than a traditional farm. The farm supplies both the school and a number of Michelin-starred restaurants in the city.
In this one-hour tour, you will have the chance to taste dozens of rare plant varieties, most of which are never available fresh in New York City. With expert guidance from Farm Manager David Goldstein, you will uncover the science of how plants thrive in completely-controlled conditions, and experience new flavors and ways of thinking about culinary plants.
Attendance is strictly limited, so that there is plenty of time for Q&A and hands-on access to plants.
