29.09‒07.10 “Interesting Edible Plants”

We sometimes do not dare to try unknown fruit, seeds, leaves, stems and bulbs because we just have no idea what these new edible plants are. What should certainly find a place on our table is various legumes, for instance, mung beans, chickpeas and fenugreek. In addition to fascinating herbs and vegetables, our exhibition presents Asian leafy greens, for example, bok choy, tatsoi and mizuna, which could be used for bolder experiments in the kitchen. Yacon, honey mesquite and sweet monk fruit can, in their turn, provide great substitutes for refined cane sugar. Those who like it hot will also find the exhibition worth seeing because there is a display of interesting “peppers”. At weekends, there will be excursions and a children’s workshop “Rainbow on your plate”. At 13:00 on Sunday, 7 October, a lecture will be held by integrative therapist Liis Orav on the topic “Feed your health”. Harri Poom will be introducing grape and melon varieties grown on the fruit farm Saare-Tõrvaaugu. At weekends, young grape vines and melon plants will be sold from 11:00 to 16:00. Payments accepted in cash.
