Edible Native Plants Show & Tell

Exhibit Hall B
Did you know that many of Florida’s native plants are edible? Even some that are commonly used or found in landscapes have culinary value. This course uses a presentation plus show-and-tell demonstration format to introduce participants to the edible, medicinal and nutritional properties of some common native plants. The class will learn how to identify these plants, what parts are edible, ways to prepare and consume them, and how to use them in the landscape. The presentation will also include a walking tour, which will allow participants to see some of these plants in use and possibly offer opportunities for sensory experiences.
