If we are what we eat, why do we keep getting sicker?
Are you aware that our agricultural system is the largest polluter of the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay Watershed?  Did you ever consider gardening as a political statement?

Seppi Garrett and Fern Wilson share the evening educating us on how our current food system adds to the toxic load on our bodies.  Seppi will be offering suggestions and solutions on growing our own food, whether in pots on your deck, raised beds or a large spread, and Fern will offer nutritional insights and share simple, healthy, crowd pleasing recipes to turn your produce into a feast for your senses.

Whether you are an avid gardener, an aspiring novice, have no interest in gardening, you will learn important facts about our environment and community and how you can support the environment by buying and/or bartering with folks growing their own food.
