Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

There are plenty of reasons why you might want to plant your own kitchen garden -- money and health foremost among them. But how do you go about figuring out what to plant, and how do you design your garden so that you get the same aesthetic pleasure from fruits and vegetables that you do from flowers?

Writer Anna Pavord, gardening correspondent for The Independent and author of several books, will lead a Kitchen Garden Planting and Design seminar tonight at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1005 York Street.

There will be a 6 p.m. Slow Food Denver social hour and tasting preceding Pavord's talk, which starts at 7 p.m.

Admission is $30 for the general public; sign up by e-mailing registrar@botanicgardens.org, visiting www.botanicgardens.org or calling 720-865-3580.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
