The SER-UW Native Plant Nursery is partnering with the UW Botanic Gardens to give free classes on various native plant topics! The first class is this month on September 19th, from 6:30pm-8:00pm at the UW Center for Urban Horticulture. The topic is Eat Native: Identifying Edible Native Plants.
Full Class Description: Learn to safely identify many of our native edibles here in the Puget Sound area as well as ways to incorporate native edible plants into your home landscape! This class will include a small tasting of different native plants you can grow and harvest as well as a short walk around the Union Bay Natural Area to take a look at some of the native edibles and compare them to invasive look-alikes. Children are welcome, but class content will be geared towards an adult audience.
Instructor: Mary-Margaret Greene, graduate student and co-manager of SER-UW Native Plant Nursery
Cost: Free! Your optional $5 donation at the door will support our education programs and native plant nursery
