A Garden Both Charming and Helpful

A Garden Both Charming and Helpful

Not a bad combination, really. If you’d like your garden to cover both these bases, Seedy Saturday has a couple of talks for you.

At 10:15, Lynda Dowling of Happy Valley Herb and Lavender Farm will speak on Beyond Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme. She’ll tell us how to grow a whole array of culinary herbs, useful not only for making our own dinner delicious, but for feeding pollinators as well.  And charming? You bet. Many of them have delightful scent, flowers, or foliage.

Then, at 12:45, Elaine Codling will show us how to create Absolute Abundance in Small Spaces: The new permaculture cottage garden. Many people love the look of flowery 20th-century cottage gardens, but the original cottage garden was meant to be useful: it was a way of providing for a family without spending much money. Permaculture gives us a way to create a cottage garden for the 21st century, a garden that is abundant, earth-friendly, and beautiful.

See, you can have it all.
