There are many woody landscape edibles that will grow well here, that far too few know anything about. This class features 10 plants that are seldom used that are worthy of a place in any landscape. Many of the plants featured are drought, wind, cold and late frost tolerant making them good for challenging climates. This two hour class goes into cultural details for each plant, and how to use them. All participants will receive a printed copy of the presentation for notes and later reference. This will be a very informative class good for future planning.

A spring plant sale will be held the following weekend on Saturday, May 11th from 10:00am-1:00pm, and many of the fruits discussed in this class will be available.

Seating is limited to 10 participants, and a minimum of 5 are required for the class.
