HHG-Fun Foods Farm-hero

 

Come explore Fun Foods Farm—a magical spot within the Heartland Harvest Garden designed with kids in mind!

Water Conservation Courtyard

In the Water Conservation Courtyard, splash in the water as you learn how the water cycle works and pick up tips on conserving this precious resource. Don't miss the photo opportunities with our new residents, the Missouri mules, and pump some water for them to drink while you are there.

 

The Tutti Frutti Maze and Raised Beds

Wind your way through the Tutti Frutti Maze--a tasty path winding through berries and mints- and escape through the chicken coop and out to see the raised planting beds, including the Kids' Club bed.

 

 

 

 

Worm Dig and Hoop House

Don't miss the Worm Dig, where you can search for earthworms which work hard to enrich our garden soil. Plus, step inside our hoop house to see where seedlings get their start.

Good Bug, Bad Bug

Beneficial insects are valuable workers in the garden. Pause for a game of "Good Bug, Bad Bug" hopscotch and climb on our oversize sculptures of favorite "good bugs" like the praying mantis.

Mr. McGregor's Garden

Snap beans, lettuce and chamomile entice the senses. You may even spot Peter Rabbit or one of his furry cousins in the garden. Stop in Mr. McGregor's colorful shed and revisit the story of this hungry bunny. 

Fun Foods & Extraordinary Vegetables

Round out your journey in the Fun Foods & Extraordinary Vegetables Garden, where you can learn where favorite treats like chocolate, cola and root beer come from.
