Fruiting Shrubs for the Northwest Edible Garden

On Tuesday, June 2, please join the Garden Club as we welcome Devon Bonady, co-owner of Fern Hill Nursery and Botanical Sanctuary in Cottage Grove. Devon will share in-depth information about growing edible fruiting shrubs in our area. She will discuss her favorite shrubs and varieties as well as how to enjoy the fruit over many years of harvest.

Devon started Fern Hill Nursery in 2006, and along with her husband Brian, they propagate and cultivate a diverse array of edible, medicinal, native, and locally adapted plants. Some of those plants will be available for sale following the presentation.

We have had the pleasure of hosting Devon in the past and are excited that she will be joining us again. Garden Club meets in the Friendship Hall at the First Presbyterian Church, 216 South 3rd Street (the corner of 3rd and Adams). Our business meeting starts at 6pm, and Devon's presentation begins at 7pm. All guests and visitors welcome. Refreshments provided.
