Upcoming Workshops:

Designing a Healthy Home Landscape – September 7, 10 AM – 12 PM

The choices you make with your landscape impacts your health and the health of the surrounding environment. For many, the landscape can feel like a drain on time, energy, and finances. Cost-cutting and time-saving approaches to landscape management can expose us to poisons that damage our bodies and the environment beyond our property lines. Gain more control over health by joining Preston Montague at SEEDS for a presentation on best practices in the landscape. Preston will show you approaches to landscape design and management that he practices as a professional landscape designer that will help you save time and money, avoid frustration, and provide resources for the natural world around you. Through a few simple concepts and approaches, you will learn how to dramatically change the way your landscape impacts your health and the health of the environment. 

 

Cooking Matters – Weekly On Tuesdays 11/5 – 12/17

SEEDS Families are invited to enroll in “Cooking Matters”; a free cooking class series hosted at SEEDS in collaboration with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, a program of Share Our Strength. Classes are typically two hours long and will run once a week for six weeks starting in November 2019*.

Each class will include both a nutrition and a cooking lesson and will culminate with participants preparing a recipe that would be appropriate as a meal for dinner. Families are asked to commit to attending at least 4 of the 6 workshops and will leave with a small bag of groceries to take home at the end of each class as well as delicious recipes to try at home. 

Come on out and let’s get cooking!
