Garden lecture with award-winning author, and kitchen garden designer.
New Heirloom Garden | For Gardeners who Love to Cook
55 Minute Lecture | Based on The New Heirloom Garden book | Hand-outs included
Because food gardens are more important than ever, The New Heirloom Garden lecture is ideal for gardeners seeking to grow the best-tasting vegetables, the most fragrant flowers and add structure to their kitchen garden design. Learn the six steps to successful kitchen design, based on classic European Potagers, and what to grow for old-fashioned charm.
Tasting food pulled from the ground, twisting off a green stem, or picking up an apple dropped from a tree at the peak of ripeness is the way I wish we all ate. I may lure you to try something new from my garden, but digging deeper in search of heirloom varieties, those delicate fruits, fragrant flowers, and open-pollinated and heirloom vegetables, is the secret to unearthing your own favorites.
In this lecture, you will take home design ideas for your kitchen garden, featuring heirloom designs and plants from my new book, The New Heirloom Garden. Learn why growing heirlooms matters for preserving diversity, flavor, and the legacy of seed saving. Deepen your connection to the wide diversity of plants that you can only grow in your kitchen garden.
