Green Tuesdays: Films & Lectures on Sustainability

Next Tuesday, May 11: Berries & Fruits for Any Backyard

Dale and Cindy Secher of Carandale Farm will share their expertise on berries' and fruits' space requirements, growing conditions, culinary uses, and wildlife benefits. Find out which plants can take over, what to do if you have shade from trees, how to deal with insects, and which berries and fruits are best for your conditions. This will be a major Q&A session, so bring all your "Qs" for these fruit experts.

Just eight miles south of Madison, Carandale Farm is the longest established pick-your-own farm in Dane County. They offer pick-your-own and already picked strawberries (the owners' passion), plus fall raspberries and Concord grapes. They also sell an increasingly diverse selection of little known and unusual fruits that have been researched and tested at the farm. Carandale Farm grows their produce in an environmentally conscientious manner and has used Integrated Pest Management for over 30 years.

About Green Tuesdays
Green Tuesdays: Films & Lectures on Sustainability is the community exchange of information and ideas on sustainable living brought to you by The Natural Step Monona and the Monona Public Library.

Green Tuesdays are from 6:30 to 8:00, with engaging and fun conversations often pushing the conclusion a bit past that hour. The series is free and open to the public. Sessions are on the second and fifth Tuesdays of the month, from September through May. The Monona Public Library is at 1000 Nichols Road.

Whole Foods serves treats. Attendees are encouraged to come early for delightful food and drink.

Green Tuesdays are supported by the Dane County Environmental Council.
