Growing and preparing your own vegetables and fruits can help stretch your food dollars and be a rewarding and healthy experience. Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet can help reduce the risk of diseases, and gardening gives an opportunity for outdoor exercise.
Learn all about growing and preparing heart-healthy vegetables and fruits at a free workshop offered by the Palm Beach County Cooperative Extension on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Clayton E. Hutcheson Exhibit Hall A (559 N. Military Trail, West Palm Beach).
The workshop will include presentations on gardening vegetables and their nutritional values, as well as a demonstration on how to prepare them. Participants will also be able to taste prepared dishes. Presenters will be Nutrition and Food Safety Extension Agent Ada Medina-Solórzano and Plant Pathologist Dr. Christian F. Miller.
Participants must call (561) 233-1742 to register.
