CULTURAL CONNECTIONS - THE VIETNAMESE COMMUNITY BACKYARD GARDENS & EASY TO GROW ASIAN VEGETABLES
TUESDAY 5/16/2023 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
LIVE ZOOM CLASS
PRESENTERS: ROY VU & CAROL BURTON
COMPLIMENTARY

For Vietnamese Americans, their home gardens are healing and nurturing green spaces replete with fresh, accessible, and affordable herbs, vegetables, and fruits. Consequently, they maintain some sovereignty over their diet and food consumption. By raising food gardens of their own, Vietnamese Americans create a homeland duality, where they not only gain a greater sense of belonging here in the United States, but they also remain rooted to their Vietnam of the past.  This class will teach all about the scents, tastes and traditions that live on in Vietnamese home gardens!  

Carol Burton will share her top 5 Vietnamese herbs to grow right now in your kitchen garden, for your Houston area spring and summer gardens.
