|Presenter:||Sara Trimm, Brad Pendergraft|
|Location:||SUNY: Maxcy 104|
|Classes:||1 Session 1.5 hours|
|Dates:||Fri 10:00 AM 10/06|
Based largely on Jo Robinson's book "Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimum Health", this presentation will explore the invention of agriculture and its effect on the wild plants that comprised our original diets; and how they have changed mostly for the worse over the last ten thousand years. The presenters will provide interesting scientific data and fun facts on what plant varieties to eat and how to prepare them for maximum nutrition.
Sara Trimm grew up gardening in the Midwest and has been raising food in Colton for 20 years. She loves reading about nutrition and working in her garden. Both Sara and Brad recently completed the Master Gardener Volunteer Program through the Cornell Cooperative Extension.
Brad Pendergraft came to the North Country in 1979 as a homesteader; has gardened in the North Country for the last 44 years; and grows vegetables in a 40' x 60' garden in Parishville. He is a geologist, high school Earth Science teacher, and taught night classes in the Geology Department at SUNY Potsdam, now retired. He co-authored the Adirondack Mountain Club's Western Trail Guide: First Edition.
There is no required preparation, but participants can check out the book "Eating on the Wild Side" by Jo Robinson, or visit her website: eatwild.com if they want a headstart.
