Goods from the Woods – Eat What is in Abundance

Joseph – Educator, Horticulture, Wellness
Lacey – Master Gardener, Wellness

Tuesday, June 18 – 6:00 pm

You will enjoy meeting and hearing our President’s family, the Bennett’s, as they talk about “Goods From the Woods, Eat What is in Abundance”.  Learn from this entrepreneurial family as they endeavor to live a healthy lifestyle.  Learn about some of the edibles (weeds) in your yard along with their health and nutritional benefits.  Rexella will even prepare some samples and have recipes to take home.

We are asking everyone to bring refreshments made from “wild edibles” this month, in keeping with the theme.  Don’t forget to bring the recipe.
