"Mighty Microgreens"
presented by Wendy Kiang-Spray
Wednesday, April 15, 7:30-9:00pm
At Historic Takoma
7328 Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park, MD

Not simply a garnish, microgreens are highly nutritious and fun to grow. Learn why gourmet chefs and nutritionists alike love these tiny and beautiful greens. Participants will learn how to grow microgreens and how to use them in the kitchen. Anyone can be successful with microgreens, from a child with a little handful of seeds to a city dweller with merely a windowsill.

Speaker: Wendy Kiang-Spray is a speaker and freelance writer whose articles about gardening and food have appeared in local and national publications. She loves to write about growing and cooking the vegetables of other countries. By day, she is a high school counselor and in her free time, she volunteers as a DC Master Gardener and blogs about family and garden at http://www.greenishthumb.net. Learn about her garden happenings and food projects by following her on Facebook.

This talk is open and free to all. No need to RSVP.
Please wear a recycled nametag and bring a snack to share.
