Perennial Vegetables Online Workshop

You don't want to miss this week's online workshop with author and grower Eric Toensmeier, the author of Perennial Vegetables. Eric is especially proud of his sea kale broccoli plants, which are 21 years old this year and still producing. While you don't have to live in the Philadelphia region, we will be focusing on perennial food-producing plants best suited for this region.


This online workshop is scheduled for 6:30-8pm Eastern on Thursday August 25 and sliding-scale registration is open now. Please sign up by 3pm on 8/25 to make sure you get the webinar link in time!

Perennial vegetables offer years of harvests from a single planting. Many produce in early spring, long before annual vegetables are ready to harvest. Some perennial vegetables can grow in places too wet, dry, or shady for annual vegetables. Some are exceptionally nutritious. And, most importantly, many are delicious. We’ll provide an overview of perennial vegetables as a group, and highlight species suited to Philadelphia’s climate.
