PWA presents:  

Growing Edibles for Fun and Flavor

Kelly Larsen will be giving a fantastic spring presentation. 

Whether you have a small patio, raised beds or a huge in-ground garden, growing your own food is rewarding, cost-effective and super healthy.  In this presentation by staff from the Chicago Botanic Garden's Windy City Harvest Urban Agr Dept, you'll learn tips for preparing your garden beds, managing pests and diseases in your vegetable garden and the best crops for maximizing production in the smallest spaces.  

Grow local!  Eat local!  Keep Healthy! Have fun!

Snacks and social starting at 7.  We will begin the program promptly at 7:30 after the short election.  Looking forward to seeing you all!  

See you there!
