We’re celebrating Peppers at Cornell Plantations! Join us for a party featuring peppers galore at this afternoon of learning and merriment! Meet Dave DeWitt, “The Pope of Peppers”; help name a new pepper bred at Cornell, learn to dance the salsa with live music, taste some fresh and roasted peppers, sample pepper-flavored chocolate, and enjoy pepper crafts and activities for kids of all ages. For more information on the Plantations Pepper Party, go here.
