Edible Flowers with Karen Langan
These educational and often hands-on weekly gardening programs are held every Thursday throughout the summer and feature guest speakers and a variety of gardening topics. The programs are held from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. at the Train Station unless otherwise noted. Programs are free of charge and registration is not required.
Elevate your potato salads with fennel flowers, dream of berries with lavender cream and WOW friends at your next picnic with chicken salad and lemon thyme flowers. If you can eat the leaves of an herb, you can use their flowers to add flavor, not just for decoration. Karen will reveal her favorites and “not-so-edible” edible flowers while providing recipes to get you started. Forget dreaming about lavender blueberries & cream. We will serve it at the end.
Karen and Mark Langan started Mulberry Creek Herb Farm in 1995. This family business has grown to provide the largest selection of quality certified organic herbs and miniature perennials in the Midwest, possibly the U.S. The herb farm hosts a June herb fair and Christmas market the first weekend in December.
