Event Details

This Fall we focus on the INCREDIBLE EDIBLES:  what to grow and how to grow them!  Our guest speakers will focus on those two simple questions.  Join us on October 20th and find out what they can teach us.

Also, we are listening to the feedback from our members, and the Executive has put its efforts into just that.  Our final speaker will explain what we are doing, and where we go from here.  Don't miss this look into the future, and add your input.
