Natorp's Nursery in Mason hosts From the Garden to the Kitchen, a culinary event focusing on using plants from the garden in your own kitchen, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, May 10. 

Rita Heikenfeld, culinary expert, author and herbalist, will instruct on how to create dishes using herbs and flowers from the garden; Ron Wilson, host of "In the Garden," will share his passion for growing exotic herbs and vegetables; Kate Cook, from Carriage House Farm, will discuss organic gardening techniques; Whole Foods culinary experts will provide tastings and discuss healthy eating; and Natrop's horticulturists will share their growing knowledge.

"Most grow-your-own gardeners are barely scratching the service of what types of edibles are available now for the garden," says 

Kyle Natorp, president of Natorp's, in a recent press release. "Visitors will get to explore some great new varieties including over 150 types of herbs, 70 types of tomatoes, 60 types of peppers and extensive fruit trees and berries that are now available to the Cincinnati gardener."  



According to the same release, Natorp's extensive edible collection was a personal project for Natorp — a self-admitted foodie who has a passion for ethnic cooking and spicy food. Natorp's even has the world's hottest pepper, the Carolina Reaper, in stock for planting.

Natorp's, 8601 Snider Road, Mason, natorp.com.
