January and February have provided fun and education for members of KFNL. We started out with an “Informational Meeting” at the Kent Free Library where a dozen or so people showed up to see what we were all about. Discussions ranged from bees to mushrooms to yard gardening. In February, we had 4 events – a social dinner at Mike’s Place (with a lot more interesting discussion), a seed swap with Food Not Lawns Cleveland, a GMO film, and a Kent Community TimeBank informational meeting.
This month we have quite a few meetups scheduled. Scheduled at this time is backyard bee keeping on March 15, a seed starting “party” with FNLC and a KFNL social gathering on March 22, and a TimeBank Informational meeting on March 9. I’m also looking into a FREE apple pruning seminar the last Saturday of March and will let you know if it firms up.
We are planning a plant swap in May. Don’t have a place or time yet but it will be during the day on a weekend in Kent.
I’ve been very happy with the participation we’ve had so far, and will continue to have interesting and fun meetups for the group.
