"Finding Food Where You Live"
7:00 p.m. Thursday, April 17, 2014
Kate Armstrong, urban forager, herbalist, mother of five, grandmother.
Spring greens! Here now, and free for the taking -- if you know where to look. Come learn from Kate Armstrong not just where to look but also why. Some foraged greens are wonderful to eat, for example. Some are useful medically or cosmetically. “I’ll bring a few nibbles,” says Kate.
She’ll also tell us about plants NOT to pluck for supper -- for example, the highly poisonous hemlock growing wild on the banks of Boulder Creek. FROGs who’ve heard Kate talk know we’re in for a treat with this final program of the spring.
Here’s a link to knowledgeable Kate’s introduction of herself: http://whatgrandmotherknew.com/all-about-kate/
*PLANT SALE ** PLANT SALE ** PLANT SALE ** PLANT SALE ** PLANT SALE*
SATURDAY, MAY 17
MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
Each May, FROG and the local chapter of the Herb Society of America hold a major joint sale of organic plants. It’s FROG’s major fundraiser -- the reason our dues stay low, and the source of the grant monies we give local non-profit groups that support organic gardening. Does holding the sale take work, starting right now? Yes. Can it also be lots of fun? You bet. Please plan to contribute however you can. We need you!
Co-chairs of this year’s plant sale committee--Marty Russell, Pamela Flowers; Ann Brinkman, and Michelle Cotton.
Dues reminder from treasurer Linda T: all 2014 dues must be paid in full by the end of February. Otherwise, sad to say, you won’t get further FROG newsletters or e-mails. Come in from the cold! Pay $10 and keep yourself up to date on upcoming programs and other activities.
