Gardening with Edible and Medicinal Native Plants in the Northwest

Workshop session #2 - Saturday, 1:30pm - 2:45pm
Location:Edges Room River Road Rec Center

Native plants can provide so much more than habitat for native wildlife! Growing native edible and medicinal plants brings us closer to family and community food security and helps us take control of our health care. Multi-functional native plants have the potential to encourage collaboration between restorationists and permaculturalists. This workshop will explore some of the special plants in our bio-region that we use for food and medicine. We will introduce our favorite plants that thrive in our garden, demonstrate identification, and discuss cultivation, harvest, and processing. We may also get a chance to taste some of the plants.

Here are maps to Emerald Park and River Road Rec Center as well as to Fern Hill Nursery for the tour:
