Event Details

The Program: Have you ever wondered if you can eat your flowers? In some cases, you can! Many of these edible beauties are easy to grow over the course of a season. Join us as we discuss which flowers or parts of flowers are safe to eat, and some flowers you should avoid. We will cover ornamentals, herbs, flowers of fruits and vegetables and even weeds, and give you creative ideas on how to use them.
