Edible Jasper grows another garden

ediblejasperBy Vered Kleinberger

     Container gardening can be tricky. Join us at Harvest Café to learn about soil composition and plant choice as we build the next Edible Jasper garden.

     Harvest Café has many, many containers bordering the windows of their building and asked the Edible Jasper crew to help them out. On Saturday, August 4, from 6-8 p.m., we’ll host a workshop focusing on building soil in the containers.  Come learn lots and help expand the edibleness of our community.

     Edible Jasper was begun as a Sustainable Pickens project by community members who wanted to learn more about easily growing edible plants. They have gotten together to edibly landscape Jasper while learning gardening techniques and plant selection. If you haven’t been to a meeting or workshop in the past, we look forward to meeting you at the Harvest Café soil workshop.

     Be sure to check out our other edible installations in the Pickens Progress parking lot, at 61 Main and at VanGoghs Hideaway. Harvest Café is next, with the Law Offices of Edwin Marger to follow once the summer heat has passed. Visit www. ediblejasper.com for details or call 770-605-2451 if you have any questions.

See you on August 4 at 6 p.m. at Harvest Café as you help Edible Jasper grow. Feel free to bring snacks, beverages and friends.
