Episode 18: Our plant for this episode is the Rose. Roses are edible, medicinal, and therapeutic. To learn about this beautiful plant, I spoke with Linda Buzzell Saltzman, an Eco-Therapist and Rosarian who grows roses in and around her backyard food forest.
Linda talks about the history of roses, the benefits of growing heritage roses, and why the concept of “right rose, right place” is important. Linda also shares recipes and gardening tips.
