The Door County Master Gardeners Association will hold their next continuing education program – “Ornamental Edibles with Mark Dwyer” – April 24, 7 pm at Crossroads at Big Creek. The program is free and open to the public.
Dwyer will discuss how to use edibles in garden schemes. If you love garden vegetables and herbs, the good news is that you won’t have to give up your sunny perennial beds for a segregated vegetable garden. Many edibles are as beautiful as they are nutritious, so it’s a shame to hide them away, lined in rows like soldiers, when they can contribute their own charm to an informal border or container.
Dwyer has been the Director of Horticulture at Rotary Botanical Gardens in Janesville for the past 19 years. He directs the continued maintenance and improvement of this 20-acre botanical resource with a talented grounds staff and many dedicated volunteers. His true passion is obtaining, growing, observing and photographing all types of plants. Dwyer also blogs daily from the gardens at rotarybotanicalgardens.org.
