Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

Farming with Edible Native Plants 5.21.24

with David Spahr


This class will teach you how you can grow and harvest edible, native plants. David Spahr installed a public, edible landscape across from the town hall in Washington, Maine, in June of 2014. The intention of this edible landscape is to educate and feed people. Wild bees support the pollination and are supported by the many wild local natives. Varieties include peaches, serviceberries, American plum, beach plum, American chestnut, shagbark hickory, highbush blueberries, raspberries, black raspberries, huckleberries, thimbleberries, strawberries, cranberries, raisin Viburnums, Sedum purpureum, violets, peppermint, garlic, day lily, Rosa rugosa, chives, rhubarb, Jerusalem artichoke and others. David has been farming wild, native plants for many years. His PowerPoint will show the native plants he farms with while he provides a discussion of the ecological implications.
