The Fellowship Cup in Mt. Pleasant hosts monthly Community Wellness Workshops.  Last month they invited a local Master Gardener Chuck Albright to share gardening tips.  And this month the Local Foods Coordinator from Des Moines County Extension & Outreach, Morgan Hoenig, presented on growing, preserving and cooking with herbs.  Publications and recipes from the talk are listed below. 

Be sure to check out next month's Community Wellness Workshop on June 5th, "Fad Diets Debunked."  All workshops take place at the Fellowship Cup Community Room (203 N. Jefferson, Mt. Pleasant) from 5:30 to 6:15.
