Join Glenda Collings on a hike followed by a garden tour at Fiddlehead Nursery on June 8. The afternoon kicks off with a short hike on the Ken Young Side Trail and Main Trail. Highlights along the trail will include trilliums and other spring blooms, views overlooking the Beaver Valley and a clamber around McCluskey’s Rock, for those so inclined.

Then its off to the Nursery to learn about (and sample!) edible perennials. You’ll enjoy some of the most delicious and productive perennial vegetables and salad greens for northern climates, as well as tubers, berries and edible flowers. There is a $3 fee for the nursery tour. Check out Fiddlehead Nursery for more about Ben and Kelly and their passion for permaculture and forest gardening.
