September Edible Gardening Meeting
This month’s guest speaker for the Lehigh Acres Edible Gardening Exchange (LAEGE) will be Mr. Tom Becker who is our Lee County Florida Yards & Neighborhoods Program Extension Agent. He will be teaching us about soil improvement, use of organic matter, composting, water conservation, irrigation, mulching, and Florida Yard and Neighborhood practices.
The main meeting will start at approximately 5:45pm on Thursday, September 20th in the Veterans Park Recreational Building, 55 Homestead Road and will end about 7:30pm. 4-H club members will meet prior to the main meeting from 5:30pm-5:45pm. All members require a once-in-a-lifetime membership fee of $10 per person to Veterans Park after one free “trial” visit. There is no fee for LAEGE.
A raffle ticket is provided to every type of member that brings in an item to exchange whether it be seeds, cuttings, plants, fruit, veggies, or a healthy drink or snack. Our raffle, free exchange, and snacking take place after the meeting has ended.
