Beyond Veggies: Growing Food for Preschoolers

— Written By

Cover slide for presentation on Edibles for Early Child Care

Enjoy this 1 hour recording on Edible Landscaping for Early Child Care Centers. Learn about resilient trees, shrubs, vines, perennials and ground covers that produce food with relatively low maintenance. (click the triangle in the bottom left corner to start the presentation)

Learn more about the plants identified in the video and other edible landscape plants by visiting the Plant Toolbox. Use the column on the left to select plants that will survive in your setting. Each box you check will narrow the selection on the right to only those plants that fit each of the criteria important to you.

If you're a North Carolina resident with a question about a topic on this site, your local N.C. Cooperative Extension office can help.
