Vienna library holding landscaping class

VIENNA – The Vienna Public Library, 2300 First Ave., will host an edible landscaping class on Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Simonton Room.

The class will be taught by horticultural consultant Lyndsay Biehl.

Biehl has taught other classes at the library in the past, said library director Brenna Call. This class is the third offering in the adult section of the science-oriented summer reading program, Call said.

“This shows that there is a practical use for science in everyday life,” Call said.

Seating at the class is limited and past classes have proven popular, so registration is required. Call the Vienna Public Library at 304-295-7771 to claim a seat.

Edible landscaping is the practice of integrating food plants within an ornamental or decorative setting, the library said. Typical ornamental landscaping design principles are used, but edible plants are substituted for otherwise unproductive plant material.

Plants commonly worked into landscaping include lettuces, blueberries, vegetable plants and fruit trees, the library said.
