Common Health Upcoming Programs:
*** Third Wednesday of the Month 10:00 - 11:00 AM ***
It's time to prepare the earth, plant our gardens, seed our farms and hope for rain. There are many choices on the way to the summer harvest. Pest and weed management are among the most wrenching. What do you do when your beautiful crop of brocolli turns into and feedlot for aphids and cabbage worms? When should you have intervened? What are the alternatives to pesticides? What about the weeds that swallow garden over night? Help!
Join us Wednesday, April 17 for a dialogue about organic gardening and farming. Dan Huisjen will guide us on the path to healthy, organic gardens and farms. We'll be joined by Katie Freedman who is directing Healthy Acadia's farm to school programs as well as school garden projects.
The practices if eating well and exercising daily cost each of us time and money. Yet, the cost of getting fit is pennies against the staggering cost of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
There may be no season more challenging for fitness than March. The snow has melted, but the water is icy and the garden a sodden field of mud.
Join our dialogue about ways to engage in physical activity, indoors and outdoors, and work off the winter layers for the coming of spring. We'll also look at spring dietary choices that will help us tone up.
We invite your calls and email with questions, comments and ideas for changing shape between mud and mosquitoes.
