Slow Food Chicago programs

Vicki Nowicki recommends these upcoming programs by Slow Food Chicago:

Small Fruits for the Home Garden
Presented by Rick Belding, Horticulturist, Curator of Fruits, Vegetables at The Chicago Botanic Garden
February 20, 2011 at 2:00 PM, Planter's Palette Nursery

Rick is a master at growing fruits. Homeowners will learn which fruits are easier to grow in a home setting so they can expand the array of diversity available to them in their own backyard. The Planter's Palette staff has generously offered to allow us time to come early and look around and they are going to set up a fresh Winter market for us in the greenhouse!!

Come prepared to enjoy treats baked with fruits that could be grown home gardens.

Cost is $20.00
