I will be a part of the Saturday in the Garden at  the Prince William County Master Gardener’s Teaching Garden Program, free to the public:


Saturday: August 11 from 9-12 noon;

Location: Benedictine Monastery
9535 Linton Hall Rd
Bristow, VA 20136

My topic: “The Good, the Bad, the Tasty” will focus on wild edible plants often called weeds. I will be talking about one woman’s journey in turning a backyard lawn into a meadow. What plants have medicinal and /or edible qualities? Our sustainable land base is shrinking which is causing stress and loss of habitat to our wildlife. Let’s rethink our approaches to our backyards.

The second speaker, Paul Gibson, will present: Fall Vegetable Gardening Extending the Season. I have met Paul personally doing some volunteer work at the Teaching Garden. He is a wealth of knowledge on vegetable gardens. I hope you will come by on the 11th.  Meet Paul, bring your questions and have a great day exploring the Teaching Garden here at the Benedictine Monastery.
