2016 Kitchen Guild and Interpretive Gardens

Interpretive Gardens

Riversdale's kitchen gardens are dedicated to long-time volunteer and Riverdale Park resident Betty Gossett. The eight square plots and adjacent orchard feature a variety of fruits and vegetables representative of the food needed to support the early 19th-century Riversdale community.
The gardens are maintained by a corps of volunteers who work in conjunction with Riversdale's professional gardener. Ongoing projects include maintaining the herb garden, rotating seasonal crops, planting, and harvesting. Contact us to volunteer in the garden.

Riversdale Kitchen Guild and Seasonal Selections

Using produce harvested from the garden, Riversdale Kitchen Guild members demonstrate open-hearth cooking on selected Sunday afternoons during the museum's operating hours, from 12 noon-3:30 pm. Viewing the demonstrations is free; ask about volunteering with the Kitchen Guild.
