Arboretum Hosts Programs on Butterflies and Edible Plants

Oct. 28, 2014

The Fullerton Arboretum is hosting two November programs focused on edible plants and gardens that attract butterflies.

"Native Edible Plants in Your Garden" will look at old and new ways to use native plants in the garden and in dining. The 9-10:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 8, program will feature samples of California pesto and other dishes, along with recipe cards and a list of the easiest native edibles to grow in the garden. Antonio Sanchez, production manager of Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden, will lead the program. Cost is $30 per person, $25 for Friends of the Fullerton Arboretum members.

"Butterfly Lady" Monika U. Moore, author of "Monarch Garden Adventures," will discuss the life cycle of butterflies, how they are useful in the garden and which plants attract them, during a noon to 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16, program. Fees for the class are $15 per person, $10 for Friends members.

More information and registration for both classes are available online or by calling 657-278-3407.
