Digging Deeper: Unusual Edibles—Treasures for Garden and Table

Digging Deeper: Unusual Edibles—Treasures for Garden and Table

Hortus Conclusus

Sun, Sep 23 
1:00 PM

Allyson Levy and Scott Serrano are botanical artists who moved to the Catskill Mountains about twenty years ago. Their interests have expanded well beyond paper and canvas, and they now garden all year long at Hortus Conclusus, their accredited botanical garden and arboretum. Trialing plants from around the globe, their goal is to create a “living textbook” of plant life, particularly edibles, that can be grown in New York’s Hudson Valley. These range from hardy citrus to ancient medlars, new types of quince that can be eaten raw, and a host of unusual berries and nuts. Prepare to get inspired (and hungry) during this walking tour, while Allyson and Scott share practical tips for surrounding your home and gracing your table with rare and beautiful fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Plants will be available for sale.

Registration is required and space is limited.
