Griffiths Garden

The final sustainable garden tour of 2022 featured edible landscaping at the gardens of Barbara Griffiths. The former Radford University catering manager enjoys tucking attractive edibles, such as berries, herbs, fernlike asparagus, and edible flowers into her flowerbeds. She can create a five-course meal, including wines, from the offerings of her yard. She does not use any chemicals so she and the neighborhood children who frequently visit her can nibble on both common and uncommon edibles found in her gardens. Tour attendees will be able to sample both the edible and visual delights of her yard.
