Learn how to grow healthy food, herbs, edible flowers and fruit trees in a desert environment at the February Green Building Lecture.

The free program runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, at the Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N. Granite Reef Road, according to a press release, adding that reservations are not required.

Attendees will hear about Arizona’s planting and harvesting seasons, the importance of seed-saving and ancient grains, the release said. All ages can experience a food-tasting.

Master gardeners Carol Stuttard and Joan Baron will lead the discussion, noted the release. Ms. Stuttard has taught gardening throughout the Valley and has appeared on the PBS series, “Gardening in the Southwest,” in addition to being featured in Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine.

She will be joined by environmental artist and master gardener Ms. Baron as they share their adventures in seed-saving and growing edible flowers, vegetables and herbs year-round – all while inventing tasty recipes to share, the release said.

This lecture is one in a series that includes:
