February 2015: Creating Diverse, Edible Landscapes

Transform your yard into a beautiful place full of food, flowers,  medicinal plants—a landscape friendly to birds, bees, butterflies  and other allies.  We’ll show ways to do all of this and more, with  fruit and nut trees, useful perennial plants, native wildflowers, rainwater collection—increase your household resilience while you beautify your landscape and neighborhood, it’s a win-win!

We’re meeting Wednesday, February 18th at 7pm in the Community Room (same building as the Village Clerk’s office), downtown at 125 S. Main St., Lawton, MI 49065. All are welcome, so please join us!

Solar Cooking Demo / Potluck

We met at Lewis Park (Kids’ Dream park, south of town on M-40) Sunday August 3 at 3pm for a presentation on solar dehydrators, solar ovens, and an informal potluck meal (bring whatever you like, doesn’t have to be cooked by the sun!). We talked about ways of preserving the harvest and demonstrated how a simple homemade dehydrator works, as well as a solar oven. See the flyer and event photos below!
