Bill is a green building accredited professional, and is a certified permaculture designer, and master gardener. He is a former Instructor in Prairie Horticulture, and still coaches homeowners as an independent Ecological Landscaper. 

Food is a wondrous life-giving thing. However, you may be surprised about how many parts of a plant we humans are actual consuming. You will see a short pictorial lecture on leaves, tubers, roots, stems, flowers, fruit, seeds, and more - all botanically related back to what we are actually eating on our dinner plate.
