We eat our stems too! ...

Do you cut off your broccoli 🥦 stems and throw them either in the compost or trash? It’s ok, a lot of people do. If you try to cook with them you may get something chewy and tough, it’s not pleasant. However, if you shave the outside layer of the stem, and work your away around the entire stem, you can remove the tough and chewy part and save a lot of waste and it’s yummy 😋 You can also pickle thin slices and use the broccoli stem in many different meals 🙂 #GrindstoneFarm

Saturday midday we'll be gathering cuttings from some woody fruit trees and shrubs at Rahma Edible Forest Snack Garden! We may also do some general garden maintenance while on site.

Please bring gloves and clippers if you have them. Some will also be available to borrow.

Folks can bring cuttings home to propagate on their own - there will be guidance on how to do so. Many cuttings will be brought back to an Alchemical Nursery board members' home for storage over winter.

In the spring, we'll bring these cuttings back to life as many young new plants! These will be available at the Spring plant sale, and for use in gardens around the city.
