When Master Gardeners Sara Trimm and Brad Pendergraft read “Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimum Health”, they wanted to share what they learned with everyone!

In this FREE class at the Potsdam Public Library, they will provide interesting scientific data and fun facts on what plant varieties are most packed with nutrition and ideal ways to prepare them. They’ll take you on a journey from the wild plants that comprised our original diets to those we see in grocery stores today. Find out how to reclaim the vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants that have been lost in favor of other characteristics, and get gardening tips from the best if you’re inspired to grow your own food.

Sara Trimm grew up gardening in the Midwest and has been raising food in Colton for 20 years. She loves reading about nutrition and working in her garden. Both Sara and Brad completed the Master Gardener Volunteer Program in 2022.

Brad Pendergraft came to the North Country in 1979 as a homesteader, has gardened in the North Country for the last 44 years, and grows vegetables in a 40′ x 60′ garden in Parishville. He is a retires geology and earth science teacher.

Special Instructions:
There is no required preparation, but participants can check out the book “Eating on the Wild Side” by Jo Robinson, or visit her website: if they want a head start.
