Edible Native Plants
April 20, 2 p.m., Tuesday
Free Virtual Program via Zoom

Discover natives that make excellent teas, jams, salads, sautés, herbs, spices and more while being high in vitamins or therapeutic properties. Florida Wildflower Foundation Program Manager, Stacey Matrazzo, introduces the edible, medicinal and nutritional properties of some native plants commonly found in our yards and landscapes. She might even help change your view on “weeds” to see them as food you didn’t have to plant. Many cultivated food plants have native wild counterparts. Learn how to identify, prepare, and harvest them safely and responsibly. Find out about the wildlife that also depend on these plants and learn how to make space for them in your landscape to create a native plant buffet for all!
