We love the idea of Chipotle teaming up with our local zoo to provide an edible garden...
The Chipotle Edible Garden Opens June 13
Grab a complimentary tomato plant while supplies last,
then get inspired by what Como's got growing
Friday, June 13 to Sunday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m
Nothing tastes better than a tomato grown in your own backyard ----but tomatoes are only the start of the great array of edible veggies, vines, flowers and fruits that thrive in Minnesota's growing season.
For the fourth season of the Chipotle Edible Garden exhibit, Como's talented horticulture team is growing more than 130 edible plant species, from artichokes and Zestar apples, to pole beans and popcorn. Check out the full list on our website.
To celebrate the grand-opening of this popular interpretive garden, our friends at Chipotle will be on hand Friday, June 13 starting at 10 a.m. to pass out tomato plants grown by Pahl Farms from Apple Valley ---- the same farm that supplies some of Chipotle Mexican Grill's green bell pepper and jalapenos (when in season). Opening weekend festivities also include an Edible Garden Scavenger hunt, a plant label crafting station, and interpretive programs full of planting tips and trade secrets to keep your own backyard garden in great shape.
Mark your Calendars! Chipotle will be back to Como on Monday, June 16 (10 a.m. - noon , or while supplies last) with the ingredients and a demonstration to make your own guacamole.
