The next event at Polly Hill Arboretum (PHA) is all about Eccentric Edible Trees, this Saturday, March 29, from 10 to 11 am.
PHA plant recorder Nancy Weaver will give a tour of the grounds to discover what trees and shrubs in the arboretum produce edible fruits, nuts, and other parts. “Some of these are well-known plants; highbush blueberry for example, others such as American beech and white oak were once used extensively by Native American populations,” according to a press release. Admission is $5; free for PHA members. PHA is located on State Rd. in West Tisbury. For more information, visit pollyhillarboretum.org or call 508-693-9426.
