Museum Exhibits and Events

Grow

When: June 18-July 14, 9:30 a.m. 2016

If foodie culture has an upside, it's that more people care now about where the origins of the food they eat. So where does our food come from? This question and many others are answered in the new exhibition Grow, which opens Saturday, June 18, at the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; www.slsc.org). The former site of the Exploradome is now a series of educational stations that explain everything from water conservation and the basics of botany to the care and feeding (and milking) of animals at the Animal Corral (which will have visiting livestock on select days). Grow also welcomes a series of visiting artists who have reinvented the chicken coop and created a system of condos for bees. Grow will be a permanent exhibition at the Science Center, and admission is free.
