Did you know that the young shoots of hosta lilies can be prepared and eaten like asparagus? Join Aaron Parker for a discussion on how you can turn your own property into an edible oasis. This class will introduce you to a variety of edible perennial plants suited to Maine’s climate, where to obtain them, tips and techniques for planting and maintaining them, and ideas about how to use them in the kitchen.
