Annie Novak, Assitant Manager of the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden tells us to follow our nose this weekend to Sweet & Stinky, a celebration of onions, garlic, and herbs in this vegetable garden wonderland. Cooking demos, scavenger hunts, and digging in the dirt are just the beginning of the fun!
Toby Adams and Annie Novak of the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden were on the NY Nightly News earlier this week talking about all the awesome activities going on for kids in this one-acre oasis. Check out what they have to say, and then come get your hands dirty at the Garden this weekend!
We feel so lucky to have Annie Novak on our side. Annie, the co-founder of Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, is also the assistant manager of the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden where she teaches kids about vegetables, gardening, good food, and so much more.

Beautiful profile of the Garden’s own Annie Novak from the Urban Outfitters blog. One of the many hats Annie wears is Assistant Manager of the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden at NYBG, along with co-founder of the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Brooklyn, and founder and director of Growing Chefs. Whatever hat she’s wearing, we think she’s fabulous!
