A Tasteful Place opens at Dallas Arboretum

Dallas Arboretum opened A Tasteful Place, a year-round destination and garden designed to mirror an ornamental kitchen garden or “potager” as it is called by the French. The 3.5-acre addition, is comprised of artfully arranged features, including a pavilion with event space and a teaching kitchen, an orchard, beds of ornamental display vegetables, herbs and flowers and a lagoon.

It will offer garden activities, including cooking classes, demonstrations, garden-to-table dinners, daily tastings, a hillside for picnicking and educational opportunities, where it will teach where food is grown, a press release stated.

The $12 million display garden was inspired by the movement toward growing and eating sustainable fresh, locally grown food.
