Eat Our Yards – Food for Thought to Plant Your Plot

Join us for a series of lectures meant to help anyone turn their yard into an edible paradise. Learn to decorate your front lawn with edible ornamentals, turn your backyard into a living kitchen pantry, or grow your own medicine. Beginner gardeners can benefit from talks on vegetable gardening strategies, while experts at small-scale growing can expand their skills with knowledge of perennial fruits and vegetables. All can explore gardening beyond traditional crops with the series’ lectures on how novices can care for bees, mushrooms and livestock. Bring your questions, leave with notes, and grow with us!
