Did you know that you can eat hundreds of flowers? We’re going to. Or, at least, we’re going to plant piles of different flowers that are entirely grabable for added salad romance. And yes, you can grab them. This is your Broadlands community food forest garden. Painting With a Twist, a local art studio, will be with us this Saturday to teach the short and tall how to paint flowers. Each person gets to take home their own canvas as we plant and sample edible flowers in our community gardens.
