Come and experience the Garden through its food! The program will begin in the classroom covering salad greens that are in season, how to care for them, how to harvest them, and review proper food safety harvesting techniques. Then participants will go out in the Garden to tour the food production areas and harvest their own greens. At the end of the program, participants will learn a simple mason jar honey-mustard vinaigrette recipe to enjoy with their salad.

Andrea Grace joined Naples Botanical Garden as the Adult Education Manager in October of 2014. She began her studies at Kansas State University from 2000-2003 where she was inspired by the flint hills to continue her education with plants and environmental issues. After leaving K-State, she traveled the East coast working on vegetable farms, and then took a few years off to be a stay-at-home mom. After relocating to Florida in 2009, she went back to school and graduated from FGCU with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and a minor in Biology and Interdisciplinary Studies. She has a passion for interesting garden crafts, creative cooking, food production, and permaculture design. These skills are put to use on a daily basis at her home in Fort Myers.
