Backyard Perennial Food & Herbal Health Gardens

Elderberry Bush

April 8, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$20 – $30

Learn about native perennial garden plants; we’ll focus on those that have food, herbal medicine, and pollinator potential! Join Elle Sullivan, Farm Manager at Lily Springs Farm, for inspiration and information—Elle will begin with an overview of both native ecosystems and regenerative/perennial agriculture and how these ecosystems and agricultural methods can help us design nourishing, healthy perennial gardens. Elle will also offer garden design “templates” (for example: food-focused, medicine-focused, sunny gardens, shady gardens, etc.) and provide recommended plant lists. Finally, she will cover basic perennial garden installation and seasonal care tips, potential issues to be aware of, and basic harvesting and use information for key perennial foods and herbal medicines.
