Filé gumbo from sassafras leaves? Crabapple-powered Malus Mo Mas Magnifico Meatball Munchies? Secrest Arboretum’s first-ever ArborEatUm Edible Landscape Workshop (pdf) goes from 5-8 p.m. on Oct. 9. It features walks, talks, eating and recipe sharing, all based on plants you can grow in your own backyard and maybe already do. Registration varies from $25 to $10; you’ll pay less if you bring a recipe to share, and pay even less if you bring the actual dish. The arboretum is on the Wooster campus of CFAES’s research arm, OARDC. Details: 330-263-3831 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
