Join us at the Toronto Botanical Garden on Thursday October 12th for a fun and informative talk by Ellen Zachos, The Backyard Forager. Her wild-crafted cocktails will be served and her books will be available for purchase and signing.

When you think about hostas and daylilies, you probably focus on their appealing foliage and vibrant blooms, but these perennials are delicious as well as lovely. A surprising number of garden plants can feed both body and soul. Ellen Zachos will stir up your interest in harvesting and preparing common garden plants and teach you how to wow your friends with dirty daylily martinis, rose hip soup and many other delicious treats.

TBG Members are FREE; members bring a friend for $10 each
Public $15; students (with ID) $12

The bar will be open from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. (when lecture starts) and then again after the lecture from 8:30 to 9 p.m. Light meals, tasty treats and wild cocktails inspired by Ellen’s book, The Wild-crafted Cocktail will be available for purchase. Wild Cocktails, $5 each

Ellen’s books The Wildcrafted Cocktail and Backyard Foraging will be available for sale in the Garden Shop prior to the event. She will be happy to sign your copy immediately after her lecture.
