Growing Asian Vegetables in Los Angeles
Southern California Horticultural Society in Los Angeles invites you to webinar with Florence Nishida, M.S., a Research Associate at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and Founder of LA Green Grounds. Learn how to grow a variety of "Asian" vegetables in Los Angeles - all easy to grow, often self-seeding so they return next fall/spring. Learn how they taste. Learn how to quickly prepare them, which seasonings to use. Learn some handy tricks to prolonging their harvest.
Nishida will show us how gardeners and lovers of good food can expand their palette of home-grown vegetables beyond “peas and carrots” by growing Asian vegetables, which have a wide range of unusual shapes, textures, scents, and colors.
We look forward to this delectable program, which will provide us with a variety of new choices for planting in our kitchen gardens. And, for the more adventurous, these new flavors may even broaden their culinary skills and introduce the use of both common and special seasonings in interesting combinations.
Whatever our level of skill in the garden or the kitchen, this evening can only serve to whet our appetites for more out-of-the-ordinary vegetables, and we hope you will be able to attend.
