On Earth Day 2017, Far West Nursery & Garden Center hosted author, Rosalind
Creasy, in partnership with Cabrillo College Extension, to speak on the topic of “Creating an Edible Landscape, the New American Garden.”
Dozens of enthusiastic gardeners enjoyed Rosalind’s presentation, which included extensive questions & answers regarding garden issues
and concepts, as well as slides of her personal laboratory garden in Los Altos.
Her first book, The Complete Book of Edible
Landscaping, helped popularize the term “Edible Landscaping,” now a part of the American vocabulary. It’s a valuable concept for all of us, now more than ever, as agricultural properties get
subdivisions planted instead of edibles.
Rosalind has promoted edibles to the front yard, instead of the hidden kitchen garden and has taught us to re-evaluate our perception of
beauty. How cool is it to wander into your front yard to harvest artichokes, with their distinctive, gray foliage, among the annual flowers?
Far West Nursery is committed to providing our customers with many seasonally-available, edible plant choices. In addition to
citrus, fruit trees, herbs & vegetable starts and seeds, some of our note-worthy staff favorites include rhubarb, passion fruit, guavas, pineapple mint and the perennial hot pepper, chile
