A friend introduced me to The Italian Garden Project two summers ago, when a group of us took a tour of gardens in Morningside. Mary Menniti of Sewickley founded the Project and has turned it into a network not just of natives of Italy who garden in the old-school ways but first-generation Italians who have continued the traditions and people like me who want to emulate them and celebrate their prodigious efficiency.
Now I can find out all about growing figs, and you can too.
“Everything you ever wanted to know about growing fig trees” classes will start in June. There will be four, each month through September. The two-hour classes are $40 and 15 people can be in each one.
