Plant a Kitchen Garden with Ellen Ogden Thursday, May 20th at 7:00 pm

Vegetables are gorgeous and in this presentation, Ellen proves that ornamental edibles can be just as exciting and rewarding as a flower border. Featuring photographs and original kitchen garden designs from her new book, The Complete Kitchen Garden (January 2011; Stewart, Tabori and Chang), food gardeners will be inspired to take a fresh look at their vegetable gardens with an eye towards design and color and reap the flavorful harvest.
Topics covered in this presentation are how-to site the vegetable garden, building healthy soil, how to design a creative garden with seeds and plants as your paintbrush and what to plant for success. Ideal for the cook who loves to garden, this program will provide ideas to inspire the gardener to transform their ordinary vegetable garden into an extraordinary kitchen garden.
