The Arboretum through partnerships with Wellness and Health Promotion Services and Rosen School of Hospitality Management, is able to offer and host educational cooking demonstrations.

These cooking demos offer participants the opportunity to learn how to make incorporate fruits and vegetables from the community garden into their diets. By exposing them to the process, allowing them to taste and eat the dish, and sending them home with produce and/or a recipe, the amount of food waste decreases.

We offer at least one demo a month, so please make sure you check out our events calendar, and our Facebook page. If you are interested on hosting a demo for your organization or class, please send an email to or call the UCF Arboretum at 407-823-3583.
