Nutritious and Versatile Subtropical Crops
CALENDAR ID: GSTROPC101
INSTRUCTOR: Taylor Walker
DESCRIPTION: Forget growing most of your traditional “grocery store vegetables”, which will not tolerate the intense rains, humidity, heat, and pest pressure of Florida’s summer. We will learn about growing and using highly nutritious and versatile crops selected from tropical locations around the world. Many plants covered in the class will be available for purchase before and after the class session. We will cover plants ranging from Cassava, Yams, Chaya, Moringa, Tropical Spinach, Water Celery, bamboo shoots, Tumeric, Lemongrass, and many more. If you are interested in producing great food all year long, then this class is a must! The class will be taught by Taylor Walker, of GreenDreams, an experienced Permaculture designer, horticulturalist, and educator, who has hosted classes at many botanical gardens, extension offices, universities and botanical interest groups.
