One thought on “Local, Green and Fun: Upcoming events in February and March

  1. Heather, I really enjoyed the food and the discussion yesterday evening.
    How often does this group meet? I suspect it may be monthly rather than weekly.
    I thought ‘Lettuce’ was a perfect choice for a plant/food. It’s something everybody understands. Very good!
    I am sorry I couldn’t stay beyond 8.30 pm. as I had other family commitments thereafter.
    With thanks and regards,
    John WL, Yorktown Heights
