This week for the Red Bird Mission Grow Appalachia we made a trip to the local extension office for a delicious training. The training was called Plate It Up. It was for the heart healthy training that is required. Approximately half of our members attended. There are two more heart healthy cooking training’s that are scheduled in September and August that the rest plan on attending. We all learned how to prepare four different tasty dishes Asian Asparagus Salad, Strawberry Salsa, Zippy Corn Chowder, and Very Berry Salsa. The dishes were prepared with all fresh fruits and vegetables that would grow in your home garden. Then after we watched how to prepare the dishes we got to sample, they were delicious.
It also has been a productive week for home visits. All the gardens I visited were growing great all this rain we have had has helped everything grow.
