Mar 10,2017 - Time: 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
HARVEST: UNEXPECTED USES FOR EXTRAORDINARY PLANTS with Stefani Bittner and Alethea Harampolis
San Francisco-based authors and landscape designers unveil their new book, HARVEST, on March 10th
The Gardens at Heather Farm and The Garden Conservancy welcome authors Stefani Bittner and Alethea Harampolis to talk about their new book Harvest: Unexpected Projects Using 47 Extraordinary Garden Plants set for release next month. This practical, inspirational, and seasonal guide will help make any garden more productive and enjoyable with a variety of projects--organic pantry staples, fragrances, floral arrangements, beverages, cocktails, beauty products, and more--using unexpected and often common garden plants. Enjoy a lively discussion on how to turn your backyard garden into a treasure-trove of useful plants, and watch Stefani and Alethea perform live demonstrations of some of their favorite practical botanical transformations.​
About the authors/presenters Famous for his meadows, Larry Weaner is a leading figure in North American STEFANI BITTNER and ALETHEA HARAMPOLIS are the owners of Homestead Design Collective, a San Francisco Bay Area landscape design firm. Bittner is co-author of The Beautiful Edible Garden and Harampolis is co-author of the bestselling The Flower Recipe Book and The Wreath Recipe Book, and a co-founder/owner of the floral design company Studio Choo. About the book Every garden—not just vegetable plots—can produce a bountiful harvest. In this beautifully photographed guide to growing, harvesting, and utilizing 47 unexpected plants, gardeners discover the surprising usefulness of petals and leaves, roots, seeds, and fruit. Turn tumeric root into a natural dye and calamintha into lip balm. Make anise hyssop into a refreshing iced tea and turn apricots into a facial mask. Crabapple branches can be used to create stunning floral arrangements, oregano flowers to infuse vinegar, and edible chrysanthemum to liven up a salad.
