I plan to share inspiring information about how we can take charge of our lives by eating healthy foods and carving out time to take care of ourselves.

 

And since Master Gardener Volunteers are dedicated to improving their communities...


...I will also share my inspirational and educational lessons from the
Mill City Farmers Market
so you can see how the programs we implemented have positively impacted our community.

PLUS book signings!
