Foodscaping: Turning Your Yard into an Edible Landscape
Gardeners of all abilities are invited to a Foodscaping program with Charlie Nardozzi onin the Hunter Seminar Room at Burr and Burton Academy, 57 Seminary Avenue, Manchester, Vermont. The program will be followed by a question and answer session and Mr. Nardozzi will have his books available for purchase, including his latest book ‘New England Getting Started Guide’ and his popular ‘Northeast Guide to Fruit & Vegetable Gardening.’
Charlie Nardozzi observes that many gardeners want to grow their own food in their yard, but don’t want to sacrifice beauty. The solution is to foodscape your yard. Foodscaping is growing attractive edibles such as Swiss chard, blueberries, and cherry trees in your landscape instead of strictly ornamental ones. You get beauty and food production all in one plant. Charlie will discuss design, plant selection and maintenance ideas to create the best foodscape ever.
Charlie Nardozzi is a nationally recognized garden writer, speaker, radio and television personality and the author of numerous books and articles on all aspects of gardening. He can be heard on Vermont Public Radio and is a frequent contributor to Organic Gardening magazine. Charlie Nardozzi delights in making gardening information simple, easy, fun and accessible to everyone.
Foodscaping is sponsored by Transition Town Manchester, a local group of citizens working to envision, create and realize a sustainable community in Manchester, Vermont and surrounding towns that is based on local food, sustainable energy sources, resilient local economies and a heightened sense of community well-being. Space for this program provided by Burr and Burton Academy.
