Horticultural workshop offered to green-fingered gardeners

August 13, 2012 by  

The ‘Seattle Tilth Class: Edibles in your Landscape’ workshop is less than a fortnight away and will take place at the Pickering Barn in Issaquah, Washington. Being held on August 25, the event starts at 1:00 pm and runs until 3:00 pm.

This is a gardening class being sponsored by the Resource Conservation Office of Seattle. At this session, guests will learn which perennial plants are edible, which will provide the most plant choices, and which offers the widest selection of edible food. Students will be advised on how to structure a perennial garden and how to create it through less work than is required when vegetable gardening.

There will be a session on specific plants that are available in the Pacific Northwest area, as well as a tour that will look at the edible plants, native plants, and ornamental plant options in the surrounding area and garden. Advanced registration and payment are required but can be completed online through Brown Paper Tickets. There is a small discount available if more than one person from the same household attends. Hats and sunscreen may be required for the outdoor event.

Poster printing and flyer printing through the local print companies may have created the promotional material about this course, so that the residents and people in the surrounding areas could be informed and make plans to attend. Admission to this event is $36 per person or $54 if two persons from same house register. Seattle Tilth members can gain admission for $25.
