New Heirloom Garden Design (virtual)
June 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Berkshire Botanical Garden joins the delicious revolution with a workshop on heirloom vegetables, forgotten fruits and fragrant flowers.
This lecture by Ellen Ecker Ogden is based on her newest book, The New Heirloom Garden, published in February 2021 with Rodale Books. Discover what to grow for the best-tasting vegetables and dig deeper into the diverse world of open-pollinated seeds to become a seed saver. Learn how to grow something new that is old and revel in growing your own seeds to sow each year in your own garden, and to share with friends.
In this lecture, Ellen shares six steps to successful kitchen garden design based on productivity and beauty, with designs and photographs from her new book on plant varieties that add forgotten charm to an heirloom garden and serve up good food.
