UNH Cooperative Extension, Rockingham County, will be holding a workshop for you to learn about using edible flowers from your garden on Monday, July 19, 2010. Here is more information about their class:
Edible Flowers, a free 30-minute presentation by UNH Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Dot Cole, will be held on Monday, July 19, at 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. at the Demonstration and Instruction Garden, across from the Rockingham County Complex at 113 North Road in Brentwood. Come learn which flowers are safe for consumption before experimenting with blossoms in your own garden. Cole will share some of her favorite recipes and demonstrate what blooms can be included in recipes and used as garnishes.
The Demonstration and Instruction Garden is a multi-acre site sponsored by the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program. Its mission is to promote environmental awareness through education, demonstration, conservation, and research. The gardens include a children’s garden, butterfly garden, trial garden, and many other theme gardens. All are welcome to join the Master Gardeners as they plan, plant, weed, and tend trees, shrubs, flowers, and vegetables in the display and test gardens on Mondays from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The garden is located in the meadow, at the bottom of the hill, behind the Rockingham County Complex maintenance buildings. Please park in the lot directly across from the complex at 113 North Road and walk down the dirt road to the garden.
