Please join us!!  Come on out for the Minden & District Horticultural Society’s October General Meeting.

This month’s meeting features guest speakers Steven & Sharon Bacon, of Four Seasons Greens, located in Muskoka, who will be teaching us about  “Growing Sprouts & Greens”.  Several years ago, Steven and Sharon began researching nutrition and sustainable agriculture, and discovered that there are real food options which work in our northern climate. Chief among them is sprouting, as it does not require specialized equipment, is economical, and can be done on a kitchen counter.

They are passionate about:  

1.  Fresh, local food:  making it available and accessible year-round, for everyone.   

2.  Healthy eating:  raising the bar on good-for-you food choices among all generations, to improve quality and quantity of life.  

3.  Local food security:  improving the food security in Muskoka by producing food year-round.

 

The refreshment theme is ‘‘Apple Abundance“.  Your tasty apple treats are appreciated.

Remember that this month’s meeting is held at 7pm
