Two very different interesting programs out at Mt. Pleasant. Howard County Conservancy.
Heard of the Perseids? These meteors will streak across the dark sky for the next few nights. Peak viewing should be Friday night. Dr. Joel Goodman (star doc) and Dr. Alex Storrs from TSU will be at the Conservancy talking about the meteors and along with the dozens of attendees (this is a well attended event) will be hanging out in their lawn chairs searching the night skies and counting meteors.
The sky above the Conservancy is one of the nearest non light polluted places here in the county to watch the meteors. Event is 10pm until 1:30am. Details here.
Then on Saturday morning I will be leading an event with another program volunteer, Wendy Ng. The two of us have been following the progress in the community gardens. Watching the diversity in plantings. Seeing how what was just a traditional European influenced mix of plants has now evolved into many different cultures.
Come wander around with us. 10am on the 13th. See some interesting plants. Learn how they are used. Take home a few recipes.
This program combines nature, gardening, history and more.
You’ll even get to see some of the more interesting fermentation ideas, the best way to preserve the fruits of your garden.
