Event Description

Cooperative Extension to Offer

Free Edible Gardens Workshop


Growing and preparing your own vegetables and fruits can help stretch your food dollar.  It can also be rewarding and healthy.  Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet can help reduce the risk of diseases, and gardening gives you an opportunity to exercise outdoors.


Learn all about growing and preparing heart-healthy vegetables and fruits at a free workshop offered by the Palm Beach County Cooperative Extension.  The workshop will include presentations on gardening tropical fruits and vegetables and their nutritional value as well as a demonstration on how to prepare them.  Participants will also be able to taste the prepared dishes.


Speakers at the workshop will be Ken Shuler, Charlotte Gomes and Ada Medina-Solórzano.


Participants must call (561) 233- 1742 to register.
