From garden to table
Let “Your Gourmet Girlfriends” help with culinary plans for the garden from 7 to 8:15 p.m. Monday, March 11, in Greenfield.
Personal chefs Pam Cooley and Jan Owens offer advice on making the most of garden produce. Hear about bountiful veggies that feed the family all year long, when to harvest and canning and freezing tips; and learn a pot full of recipes. The chefs will prepare sample dishes for tasting from a free, take-home booklet and give each person a starter plant for an early garden.
Register online or call 462-5141, ext. 211. Come to the library’s Greenfield Banking Co. Community Room. Free.
Lemonade Day pick-up begins
The library has received scores of “Lemonade Day” backpacks for kids who want to be young entrepreneurs. Beginning March 11, for as many days as supplies last, children can sign up at the library, get a free backpack, and use the materials inside the pack to learn how to start their own business: a lemonade stand.
Kids experience every stage of entrepreneurship: planning their resources, designing and building a booth, making a product, and selling it at a profit.
All youth participants will “open up shop” on Lemonade Day, Saturday, May 18, throughout the nine-county region.
Teen pizza taste-off
Teens in grade 6 to age 19 can be the judges at the library’s annual teen pizza taste-off from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 13, in Greenfield.
Several local restaurants donate their best cheese pizzas for this event, and teens do a blind taste-test on all the samples to decide who has the best pizza around.
Afterward, finish off the leftovers during an animated movie about a video game villain, with John C. Reilly’s voice, who decides he wants to be a hero (rated PG).
