All About Fiddleheads (Maine’s Springtime Delicacy)

$5

with Kelly Hodgkins, Western Foothills Land Trust

Calendar Apr 21, 2018 at 9 am

Join Kelly Hodgkins from Western Foothills Land Trust as we learn how to identify the fiddleheads of the tasty Ostrich fern and prepare them into a delicious side dish. Harvested in the early spring, fiddleheads are a Maine delicacy. Finding and preparing the young fronds of the Ostrich fern can be a challenge. We will go outside to forage for fiddleheads and sauté them on site, weather permitting. If the weather is inclement, we will bring our class indoors into the Harper Center Conference room with pre-picked fiddleheads to aid with identification and an inside cooking class.

Please note: If brought indoors, the class will be an hour and a half.

Outside Class time will be: 9am-12pm-Meet at Ripley Medical Building parking Lot (carpooling recommended)

Indoor Class time will be: 9am-10:30am in the Ripley Medical Building, Harper Conference Center

Calendar Mar 28, 2018 at 5 pm

Americans spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors. Indoor allergens and irritants play a significant role in triggering asthma attacks. Triggers are things that can cause asthma symptoms. If you have asthma, you may react to just one trigger or you may find that several things act as triggers. Types of triggers: secondhand smoke, dust mites, molds, pets, nitrogen dioxide, wood smoke, chemical irritants, and more. Join us to learn more about asthma triggers and how to gain control. Educational material is provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
