Have you ever wondered if you can eat your flowers? In some cases, you can! Many of these edible beauties are easy to grow over the course of a season. Join us as we discuss which flowers or parts of flowers are safe to eat and, also, some that you should avoid. We will cover ornamentals, herbs, flowers of fruits and vegetables and even weeds, and give you creative ideas on how to use them.

She spent time growing up on her parents’ almond orchard in the heat of Yolo County, and has been a life-long gardener of edibles ever since.  She’s a contributing writer for Backyard to Belly and has presented at the Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden as well as various school gardens and public libraries.
