Edible Landscaping

In our busy lives, getting back to the basics is appealing, especially when it comes to eating and beautifying our homes. One way to combine both of these ideas is to incorporate edible plants into our home landscapes. Many of our food crops are not only satisfying to the palate, but to the eye as well and are natural choices for the overall aesthetic of our yards. Join us for this class with Tarrant County Master Gardener, Teresa Day-Fickel, and become inspired to grow edible plants in your own home landscape.

October 17 • 7:00 – 8:00 pm
