Growing Great Food (and Flowers!) Working Group
Every second Sunday of the month January through November, 2:30-4:30 pm at the Public Safety Building Conference Room
The goal of this group is to produce the best quality plants of all kinds (fruits, flowers, veggies, trees…) for anyone who’s interested in asking questions, experimenting and participating in recording results and there’s more than one way of collecting data.
This Group is open to anyone interested in these topics, so pass this on to anyone you think would be interested in participating – missing a session here or there isn’t a big deal as long as everyone is moving towards better, stronger and healthier plants and plant products – and – by extension – healthier food, animals and people, landscapes and ecosystems.
