Locally sourced food can’t get much closer than your back porch. Learn how to grow your own salad, fruit and other items when Corey Brabec presents a free lecture on “Container Gardening with Edibles” at 7 p.m. April 14 at the Nebraska Union, 1400 R St., on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.

Brabec, manager of the Earl May Garden Center at 48th Street and Highway 2 in Lincoln, will demonstrate how to create container gardens using edible plants. He also will discuss the importance of plants for pollinators.

Brabec’s talk is sponsored by UNL Garden Friends, a group who advocate on behalf of the UNL Botanical Gardens and Arboretum. Brabec will supply some containers and pots that UNL Garden Friends will use as door prizes for those attending this informal talk.
