Event Details

Fresh picked artichokes
With their large, attractive gray-green leaves and beautiful purple flowers, you could grow artichokes as an ornamental; but once you've enjoyed this edible perennial you'll think twice before letting it go to flower! Artichokes make a wonderful addition to your garden, and planting season is almost here. Master Gardener Alice Espiritu will talk about how to successfully grow and enjoy this delightful thistle, from when, where and how to plant them to harvesting and cooking them.

Participants should wear closed-toed shoes, layered clothing and a hat, as the class is held outdoors in our Pavilion. A refillable water bottle, notebook and writing implements are recommended. Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to park and sign in. Please note: the park charges $6.00 for parking, or you can park on Chynoweth Avenue near Vauxhall Circle for free.
