Front Yard Foraging: Delicious Edible Wild Weeds and Edible Ornamentals That No One Knows About
January 28, 2020
You don’t have to get in a car to forage delicious wild edible plants: plenty of them grow right in your own yard. Some can even be cultivated in your food garden. Plus, plenty of ornamental plants have delicious edible parts that few people know about. At any time of year, there may only be a few of these in season. But we’ll cover two-dozen delicious weeds and ornamedibles that are just outside your house.
Frank Hyman has a BS in horticulture from NCSU and was an organic farmer in the 80’s. He cultivates wild, edible plants such as ramps, sunchokes, giant Solomon seal, groundnuts as well as common ornamentals with uncommonly delicious flowers, leaves and fruit that are unfairly ignored by gardeners. He writes the foraging columns for Paleo and Hobby Farms magazine. Check out reviews of his talks at www.frankhyman.com.
Frank Hyman will share a presentation on Saturday, February 29th from 2:00pm-3:30pm featuring a year’s worth of delicious and nutritious edibles that thrive in the garden whether you plant them or not. Class includes take-home info and plenty of time for Q&A and sample plants to pass around. Cost is $20 per person and seating is limited - to reserve your space, please click here.
