Join us for an informative, hands-on organic vegetable and herb gardening workshop led by HealthBarn USA founder, Stacey Antine, MS, RDN on Saturday, 5/4/19 from 8:30 – 11:00 am. Stacey is a self-taught organic veggie gardener who has successfully grown a variety of vegetables for over 15 years and recently installed a teaching garden (sustainably certified by the World Wildlife Federation) at the Irene Habernickel Family Park. The garden is thriving with worms, happy children and veggies and she is eager to pass her practices and enthusiasm to you!
