Are you interested in farm-fresh, organic food and herbs? Our historically accurate gardens are bursting with produce, herbs, and flowers that need to be used!

You Point, We Pick Dates

If you’re planning to participate, please email our historical horticulturalist, Anna Davis-Agostini, at adavis@washingtoncrossingpark.org.

On the dates above, come to the Hibbs House kitchen garden between 4:30 and 6 PM. If another visitor is in the garden when you arrive, please wait outside the garden until it’s your turn.

Point out anything you’d like to take home, and our historic horticulturalists will pick it for you in exchange for a donation of your choice! While you’re here, you can ask our historic horticulturalists about the history, uses, and maintenance of the items in our garden.

Please bring your own bags, baskets, or buckets, as we will not provide any materials other than the plants.
