The 12-acre Heartland Harvest Garden is one of the largest edible landscapes in the nation. It features more than 2,000 varieties of food-plants growing in spirals, Villandry-style quadrants, and heritage quilt designs. It is designed to answer the questions: Where does food come from? How does it grow? It includes tasting stations, an outdoor cafe, a gift shop and a four-story observation silo.
