Join us as the Cape Elizabeth Garden Club welcomes Master Gardener Barbara Emerson. Starting with a brief history of food gardening, Barbara will cover the concepts to consider when integrating edible plants in your ornamental garden, or edible flowers into your vegetable garden. Her goal is to help you have fun and enjoy the process of growing your own, healthy food. She will show how the height, shape, texture, fragrance and color of edibles can make your garden look and taste wonderful next summer. Short on space? Barbara will show how creative container combinations can help anyone with a patch of sun grow their own delicious food and have a beautiful space at the same time. This program will take place in the library’s Community Room. All are welcome!
