If you’ve always thought that you had to plant your lettuces, cucumbers, and tomatoes in one spot and your flowers and other ornamental plants in another, Charlie Nardozzi’s book Foodscaping is going to change how you think about what you plant—and where. Growing edibles and ornamental plants together (whether in your yard, a container, or vertically with a trellis) makes good gardening sense.
Here at The Food Schmooze® we know you love food, especially local food. You can not get more local than your own yard. Foodscaping walks you through the process of how to grow all your favorite vegetables, berries, and yes, fruit trees too, right alongside non-edibles in a way that benefits both.
Charlie was a guest on our Earth Day celebration show. You can get Charlie’s book and support The Faith Middleton Food Schmooze® at the same time by making a pledge of $8 a month or a single gift of $96. Thank you so much!
If you’d like to talk with Charlie in person, you can. He’ll be speaking about Foodscaping AND taking your gardening questions at The Warner Theater on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 11:00 am. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by calling 860.489.7180 or by visiting the Warner Theatre’s website.
