Edible Perennial Gardening and Landscaping

Saturday, May 19 at 1:30 pm 

Expert naturalist John Root introduces our audience to species of trees, shrubs, canes, vines, and herbaceous perennials that can grow and bear fruit in our region. You’ll learn about organic gardening practices that promote healthy soils, plants, and biotic communities. These benefits of organic gardening help ensure abundant crops of fruits, nuts, and vegetables throughout the growing season - with minimal effort. Bring your questions and comments; John is ready for them! Afterwards, you’ll get handouts with a list of edible perennial plant species, resources for further study, and recommended sources of seeds and plants.
