Event Description

Having trouble with lettuce bolting and carrots just not growing? Join Kate Wall and Arno King for a fun evening talking edibles for the subtropics over a craft beer. Asian lettuce, Brazilian spinach, papalo, okra, Ceylon spinach, and cranberry hibiscus are all on the menu, all summer long. Join Kate and Arno in a fun chat, with lots of Q&A for you to join in the discussion.

Great subject matter, I hope somebody from the forum goes along and take some notes ....... It's the one thing I do miss about being in a more populated area is the opportunity to attend this type of get together.

Sounds marvellous. It's too far away for me - a magic carpet would be good.
