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.
