Wednesday, April 11, 6:30 pm – Learn to Garden with Edibles


Join Master Gardener Betty Sanders at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 11 at the Endicott Estate, 656 East Street, Dedham, for a talk on how to grow vegetables in that most local of all gardens, your own back yard. Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served. Sanders will discuss how to plan an edible garden, amend the soil, and choose what plants to grow. While vegetables traditionally are grown in a separate area, Sanders will also talk about how to incorporate edibles into flower borders, containers or raised beds. Betty has lectured at the New England Flower Show, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s lecture series, the Boston Public Library as well as at many garden clubs and civic organizations. Her own two-acre garden was part of the National Garden Conservancy’s Open Days program in 2008. The talk is sponsored by the Fairbanks Garden Club of Dedham and is made possible by a grant from the Dedham Institution for Savings Foundation.
