I will be attending a Birthday party for a cute little Girl at the Northwest end of Cornwall Park at 11:30 on this day. If anyone is carpooling and can meet me at this site that would be Great. Thanks.

Anything taught by Chris is Hot Baby, and deserves your attention!

If you're still hauling your weeds & kitchen scraps to the city green site, or dumping them in the garbage can, its time to scrap that industrial cultural behavior and toss them in your home Compost Pile to the hardworking microorganisms.

Wish I could attend to pick up some more composting pointers!  Building good soil is one of the most important things any of us can do, so all of y'all that are sittin' on the fence, go ahead and sign up for this class, hear?
