Edible flowers are some of the greatest multitaskers in the garden; they support pollinators while adding beauty and color, and are delicious and nutritious to boost. Join Sierra Vasquez in exploring her favorite varieties (taste testing included!), learn how she plants them strategically to maximize bounty and beauty, and discover how she likes to utilize and preserve edible flowers after they've been harvested, from beautiful pressed cheeses and medicinal teas to healing creams and infused vinegars. You'll leave with a luxurious moisturizing and exfoliating flower-infused salt scrub of your own creation. 

Sierra Vasquez is a Lead Edible Gardener with Homestead Design Collective. Previously, she farmed for the French Laundry, which evoked her passion for the plant to plate experience, rare plant varietals, and unique growing techniques. She is a third generation orchid grower from Southern California, and she spent her childhood working alongside her father and grandfather to learn the art of orchid growing. Today, she is a modern day homesteader based in Sonoma County, where she lives with five beloved chickens and grows most of her own organic produce. See more about Homestead Design Collective @homesteaddesigncollective
