Everyone who visits the park can see that Sesame Place is colorfully peppered with different and interesting types of plants and vegetation, but many people don’t know that the park is also peppered with…well, peppers! But there are tomatoes, herbs, strawberries, squash, watermelons, and peaches here, too.
Guests and team members alike are welcome to snack on the delicious plant-grown treats in Twiddle Bug Land, pictured above. These Twiddle Bug Land gardens were planted by Sesame Place’s Education Program, something you can find out more about by clicking here.
The Sesame Place horticulture team and Sesame Place community gardeners work hard to plant, water and harvest all of the different fruits and vegetables raised in the park each season. Team members who work to grow plants in the community garden are encouraged to harvest the ‘fruits’ of their labor and distribute them as they please, but any food that goes unclaimed is delivered to relief associations like the United Christian Church in Levittown, PA and the Penndel, PA branch of the Bucks County Housing Group. Drop offs to these relief centers are performed twice weekly, offering those in need the chance to enjoy some fresh fruit and vegetables. Check out a photo of our community garden below!
