Winter Workshop: Plant the Pits
Saturday, November 17, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (AKST)
You may have tried growing a pineapple top, rooting mint stems, or planting an avocado pit. But you can also grow many of the seeds, pits, roots and tubers from the grocery store. You probably throw away or compost these parts anyway, so you have nothing to lose! Join Education and Outreach Coordinator Patrick Ryan for a virtual botanical trip around the world by planting your kitchen waste. Please call 907-770-3692 with questions and to register, $25 / $20 ABG members. Visit our website at www.alaskabg.org.
Alaska Botanical Garden
The Alaska Botanical Garden is a public garden dedicated enhancing the beauty and value of plant material through education, preservation, recreation, and research
The Garden is located in Anchorage, Alaska, just South of Tudor Road at 4601 Campbell Airstrip Road, adjacent to Far North Bicentennial Park. Bordering the Garden to the East is the north fork of Campbell Creek. Chugach State Park is nearby.
About the Garden
The Garden is comprised of 110 acres of Boreal Forest, with nature trails connecting the Gardens and points of interest.
With over 1,100 species of hardy perennials, and 150 native plant species, the Alaska Botanical Garden is a great place to experience the abundance of the summer sub-arctic growing season and to learn about flora native to Southcentral Alaska.
From May through September you will find flowering plants and shrubs in two perennial gardens, a formal herb garden, an alpine rock garden, and a wildflower walk. A new "East" Garden hosts a Gold Medal Peony collection.
