Filed under: Uncategorized

SATURDAY, MAY 24Nature walk/hike of Bredesen Woods and an educational Compost Party!

Join us before the meeting to Sustain Your Self with a nature hike in the woods of Bredesen Park (you can meet us at the bathrooms in the Olinger Boulevard parking lot at 9:15) or walk from my house at 9:00, then (optional) to come back for coffee and the compost party 10:30-11:30. Learn about the various ways to eliminate your “green waste” from the collective waste stream while feeding your garden with ‘gardner’s gold.'”

This picture looks like a Scarlett O’Hara maybe 1 year later from the time she fell to her knees and cried out to the heavens, “As God is my witness, I’ll never go hungry again!”

She is pleasantly reflective about her abundant crops. May my garden do as well.

Up Next…Wednesday, June 11 at 7:00pm. Book discussion of the Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv and the topic of “nature deficit disorder.” At an EcoMoms house.
