April, 2012 – Seedleaf and Winging It

Jeremy Porter will be presenting our program this month. He is the representative for the organization called ‘Winging It’, a subsidiary of Seedleaf.

Since the subject is chickens and the wonderful eggs they produce, Julia, Herb Guild President, thought our food theme should be “Breakfast for Dinner” using your favorite herbs.
The meeting starts at 6:30pm, Wednesday April 11th at my home.  Herbally – Louise Hinson
