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!
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!
This Sunday’s meeting: Herbs for the Family
Come and learn some of the herbs which can help your family with everyday health issues. We will meet at the Lawton Community Room, 125 S. Main St. (same building as the Library/Clerk’s office), from 3-5 pm., Sunday May 4.
This will also be the meeting where we debut the Local Food Guides we’ve worked so hard on putting together, hot off the press. See you then!
UPDATE: We had a great meeting and learned a lot from Rita, who has been working with medicinal herbs for decades. Thanks to all who attended!
