Gardening Talk

When: Sat., Sept. 25 2010

For those of us into gardening, September is the time when stacks of tomatoes and zucchini start cluttering the kitchen counter and the doorsteps of everyone we know. The Cleveland Botanical Garden (11030 East Blvd., 216-721-1600) celebrates our vegetative wealth with its RIPE! Food and Garden Festival, a new event that rides the cresting wave of interest in local food and urban farming. Local growers and chefs will be on hand for demonstrations on how to grow your own food and what to do with it once you've got it. And it's not just about fruits and vegetables — you'll learn about local cheeses, teas, honey, grass-fed beef, wine, and beer too. A marketplace will feature the wares of dozens of local food producers and restaurants, so you can taste the bounty and take some of it home. RIPE! runs from 10 a.m. to sunset today through Sunday. Tickets are $3 to $12. Go to cbgarden.org for more information. — Anastasia Pantsios
