Upcoming Events in April!

Greetings Everyone!
It is finally APRIL and the weather report promised me above freezing temperatures.  
Seeds are started, nestled away in their little pots and snow drops are emerging amid tufts of brown grass and we have a slew of workshops and events coming up this season.

April 7th - Starting Seeds and Gardening Basics at BOCES Fredonia with Jack Dugan's class.  His class has their own garden right next to the school so all the students can watch the progress of growth.

April 9th - Preserving Food Through Dehydration at Lake Shore Family Center in Silvercreek.  We will be teaching families how to dehydrate gleaned garden goodies and to make the dried food into delicious meals and snacks.  

April 21st - Homemade Granola Bars at the Boy's & Girl's Club in Dunkirk at 3:45 P.M.  We will be making enough healthy granola bars from scratch to give all the kids there a wholesome snack.  This way, we can teach the children what's in their food and how to make it better for them.

April 22nd - EARTH DAY! Get out and play.

April 25th - Adopt-a-Beach Clean Up Day at Point Gratiot in Dunkirk at NOON, hosted by Dr.Sam Mason of SUNY Fredonia.  Get out and show your support for your community and the environment by helping to clean up the beach.  

April 26th - Backyard Salsa Cooking and Nutrition Workshop 3:00 - 4:30 P.M at the Friendly Kitchen in Dunkirk (131 Central Ave.).  Sarah, Kelsey, and Kathleen from Enactus Greenwave at SUNY Fredonia will be hosting a workshop on growing a salsa-themed garden and we will be sampling various typed of salsas made in our kitchen!   

If you would like to volunteer at any of these events, please email me at ccrmgleaning@gmail.com

Take care!
