Edible landscapes aim to nourish the mind, body and ecology. Furman will discuss how to create unique, functional and edible landscapes in New England’s climate, how to grow heirloom apples and historic pears, as well as pawpaw and persimmon. He will cover the what, where and how of incorporating fruiting trees and shrubs into the landscape, whether the goal is delicious chemical free fruit, providing fodder for wildlife or a beautifully designed garden. A plant sale will follow the talk.
