Native Plant School is a year-round series of indoor/outdoor classes in the Whitmire Wildflower Garden at Shaw Nature Reserve that covers various aspects of native landscaping. Please bring your questions, comments, drawings, and plant specimens. Participation from the audience is encouraged. Native Plant School at Shaw Nature Reserve is underwritten by the Missouri Department of Conservation and Wild Ones Natural Landscapers.
Did you know that many native plants are edible and delicious too? Together, class members and Whitmire Wildflower Garden horticulturists will identify some common native edible plants, view them in a garden setting, discuss different ways to utilize them in recipes, and sample them too! This will be a fun and interactive class for gardeners and cooks alike. Designed for adults only.
