Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, Illinois

Healthy eating and organic foods are very much in focus these days. This weekend the Botanic Garden presents information and interesting how-to demonstrations with vendors and hands-on activities for adults and children explaining the gardening, storing, preserving and growing of healthy foods.  This will also include information on bee-keeping and honey harvesting. So if you enjoy gardening and/or preserving home-grown foods, join in the fun at the Regenstein Fruits and Vegetables Garden.

On hand, there will be several well-known experts and members of the Botanic Garden staff offering instruction and demonstrations including Dan Bussey of Seed Savers Exchange who will discuss Heritage apples.  Staff members Ann Stevens and Bob Bavirsha will demonstrate honey harvesting and offer honey tasting. They will be challenging participants to identify different types of honey such as linden, wildflower and buckwheat. Mr. Bussey will offer twenty types of apples for sampling and those will also be available to purchase in seeds.

Additional seminars and demonstrations throughout Saturday and Sunday begin at 11 AM and run through 4 PM each day. Don’t miss the Garden Chef series presentation with Food Network stars, “The Hearty Boys”, who will offer their new signed cookbook for purchase at the Garden Shop. For fun, bring your own cookbook to swap in the Gardens’ first cookbook swap called “Keeping Heritage Recipes Alive”.

So stop in this weekend to enjoy this wonderfully informative and interesting event at Chicago Botanic Garden Harvest Weekend!
