Day: July 31, 2012
Don’t miss Kim Curiel’s class this Saturday at the Garden.
August 4 3 – 5pm California Edibles and What Native Americans Ate
Join Kim Curiel, Burton Valley’s incredibly creative and entertaining teacher, as she takes us back in time. We’ll not only learn which native plants are edible, she’ll also teach us how to prepare and enjoy these plants that Native Americans and early settlers depended on. Bring your curiosity and appetite!
Diane and Fred Wilt have volunteered to collect and organize some recipes using produce from our garden. If you wish, in the days to come please think about a recipe (simple is good) that you like which features veggies we’re hoping to harvest from our garden. We’ll be in touch soon to solicit your suggestions, and we’ll organize and compile them for our collective use.
Ashland has more going for it than the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. For instance they have an inspiring, educational, nature center with demonstration gardens each designed with a unique theme: the Butterfly Garden, Reptile and Amphibian Garden, Herb Garden, Heirloom Garden, Native Plant Garden and Bird Buffet. Interpretive materials help learners of all ages self-navigate the garden. In addition to building community, this Outdoor Learning Center shares information about local wildlife, sustainable agriculture and native plants. Lots of great ideas for us to build on in Lafayette.
