A PowerPoint presentation by John Root, featuring the variety of trees, shrubs, vines, canes, and herbaceous perennials that can be grown in New England for bountiful harvests of fruits, nuts and vegetables. Participants will learn how to establish and care for these plants using organic methods of cultivation. Nutritional and medicinal benefits of the plants will be discussed as well. Questions and comments are welcome throughout the presentation, and handouts with a list of edible perennial plant species, resources for further study, and recommended plant nurseries will be distributed at the conclusion of the program.
