Best Food Plants for Our Gardens

 Tuesday, September 10, 7 p.m. at the Cornwall Navy Club, 30 Sixth Street East.  A talk by Karen Carriere at the Cornwall & District Horticultural Society. If we want to grow some of our own produce, what’s worth the time and effort? Which vegetables and fruits are the most nutrient dense? Which are the easiest to grow in this region? What’s pretty enough to use as edible landscaping? Worried about pesticide residues on conventional produce, but can’t afford organic? If you grow, or are thinking of growing some food, this talk will be of interest. Bill and Karen Carriere grow hundreds  of different fruit and vegetable varieties at their homestead near Newington.

The Edibles are now Incredible

As part of the Incredible Edible event held in May in front of Cornwall City Hall, vegetable and herb seedlings were lovingly planted.  These plantings were multipurpose: for passerby folks to help themselves, for the beauty of the plants as well as to show how edible plants may become part of our urban landscape. Please follow the link below for a recent article in the local Cornwall Seaway News.

    The ‘Enviro Action Gardeners’ link appears to be corrupted – maybe missing a colon?

      Hi Hugh,
      Thanks for pointing out the error. It was a formatting issue, as you suggested.
