Growing food in the home landscape can be challenging. Too much shade, not enough sun, lack of space for a backyard vegetable garden are common barriers to growing our own food. You may have more gardening space in your home landscape than you realize. A unique gardening strategy, “foodscaping” offers ideas for using existing space in new ways. One of the national leaders in this movement is Brie Arthur. Her first book, The Foodscape Revolution: Finding a Better Way to Make Space for Food and Beauty in Your Garden will inform the content of this week’s free online class.
Brie Arthur will present “Fall Foodscaping—Texas Style” on Saturday, October 24 from 10 a.m. to noon. This class is packed full of information and creative ideas for using any sunny space to grow vegetables. Brie will teach you how to beautify your landscape while growing your own food. Whether beginner or expert, you’ll learn strategies you can employ right now to add cool weather vegetables to your home landscape. The beauty of these vegetables will rival traditional annuals—and they are edible! With Brie’s expert guidance, you will learn which vegetables and fruits will grow best in our southeast Texas climate.
