Cooking with Indigenous & Invasive Plants
Thursday, Sept. 22, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Stop and eat the roses…and the day lilies and the burdock, too! Water is far too precious to waste on high maintenance lawns and diva ornamentals, and the survival of pollinators is hanging in the balance. It’s time to ditch the delphiniums and learn to love – and eat – the weeds!
