Fresh Food Resolution:  A New Year's Plan to Grow Your Sources for Local Food

Elizabeth Beggins will be the January speaker for the Brown Bag Lunch program at the St. Michaels library sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Ms Beggins is a freelance writer and educator with over a decade of experience as a market gardener on the Eastern Shore.

She believes that our health depends on a keen understanding of what we eat, and that our food choices are vital to sustaining ourselves and our planet. Elizabeth also directs The You Food Project, a grassroots initiative designed to connect youth to food and the environment through school gardens. Currently underway with St. Michaels Elementary School fifth and sixth grades, the You Food program features hands-on lessons in plant and soil science, water conservation, local food systems, and gardening techniques.  Students plant the garden, and then take part in engaging discussions, activities and experiments during the weekly classes.

Patrons are invited to bring their lunch and enjoy coffee and sweets provided by the library.  Pre-registration is not required for this program. For more information, call the library at 410-745-5877, or visit www.tcfl.org.
