The Edible Landscape: Creating a Beautiful and Bountiful Garden with Vegetables, Fruits and Flowers
Free and open to the public, please preregister.
Inspired by the fresh-food revolution, more people are growing fruits and vegetables in just about every outdoor nook and cranny, from abandoned city lots and tiny balconies to backyards and suburban boulevards. The good news is that in addition to providing a delicious and nutritious bounty—not to mention a fun and fulfilling pastime—fruit and vegetable gardening is also an opportunity to create interesting outdoor spaces overflowing with color as well as flavor.
Throughout The Edible Landscape, author Emily Tepe provides examples of how to press your gardens into double duty, from planning striking color and texture combinations to actually getting down to the business of planting, pruning, watering, repelling pests, and harvesting. Banish the thought that fruits and vegetables must be grown in rigid rows and instead open up to the idea that your yard can be a feast for the stomach and the eyes.
As a fruit researcher and a former exhibit designer and muralist, Emily Tepe looks at the world with both a practical and creative eye. She established an edible landscape demonstration garden at the University of Minnesota. Emily writes about fresh garden ideas and fresh food on her blog, www.artichokesandzinnias.com.
