In this exciting NEW course offering, delve deeper into the world of edibles while learning how to identify 15 popular (and tasty) vegetable species, 15 flavorful herbs, 15 delicious fruits, and 5 easy-to-grow nut trees (including Castanea mollissima, the Chinese Chestnut) that will provide a cornucopia of delights (botanically and culinarily!) in all four seasons.

You will be able to take the skills they learn to identify these plants and apply them to others you'll encounter outside this class. You'll also learn how these edible selections can be incorporated into your home garden.

Set your own schedule, and work at your own pace! You can participate anywhere that you have access to the internet, and you will have access to the course resources 24/7 for the entire 6 weeks of the class and for 6 months after the course ends. There are no required presentations or any set times that you will need to meet online.

This course counts as a 3-week elective toward a Certificate in Ornamental Horticulture or in Landscape Design.
