Have you ever had a Juneberry pie or a fried daylily? Do you know how to grow a pawpaw tree? Edible plants are all around us, but our reliance on the grocery store excludes them from our diets and limits our connection to nature. Learn about the nutritious, edible plants that grow well in our area, and how to incorporate them into an aesthetically pleasing landscape.

The Dyck Arboretum of the Plains offers numerous workshops that encourage the use of native plants in landscaping.

A landscape rich with native plants can be enjoyed for its beauty and the wealth of birds and pollinators it attracts.
