Digging Deeper: Fruiting Plants From Around the World for your Garden

October 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Tickets for this Digging Deeper will be available on Thursday, August 1.

Prepare to get inspired (and hungry) while learning to surround your home and grace your table with rare and beautiful fruits, and nuts.

Allyson Levy and Scott Serrano are both botanical artists who moved to the Catskill Mountains twenty-four years ago. Their interests have expanded well beyond paper and canvas, and they now garden all year long at Hortus, a nonprofit, accredited botanical garden and arboretum.

Trying plants from around the globe, their goal is to create a “living textbook” of plant life, particularly edibles, that can be grown in New York’s Hudson Valley.

These range from hardy citrus to ancient medlars, new types of quince that can be eaten raw, and a host of unusual berries and nuts.

Allyson and Scott are passionate about sharing their expertise and this walking tour will be filled with practical tips to ensure you can enjoy such bounty, too.

Refreshments featuring some of these choice edibles will be served.
