Subject: Grain Growing for Gardeners, presentation

 Growing veggies and fruit is a great beginning for becoming self reliant, but if you consider that the average person consumes about 200 lbs. of grain/year, anyone who really wants to live locally needs to be involved with growing this most important food item.  Fortunately if you can grow grass, you can grow grains, says Rene Featherstone of Lentz Spelt farms.  Rene will be at the Elk Plain Grange to talk to us about the benefits and challenges of growing a variety of grains including ancient grains that are suitable for home gardens.  You can grow enough grain to feed yourself for a year on as little as 1/20th of an acre.  Please join us for this interesting presentation:

When: March 1, 2011 7:00 pm
