EAT OUR YARDS: Citrus Trees and Indoor Food Gardening

EAT OUR YARDS LECTURE SERIES

Eat Our Yards: Food for Thought to Plant Your Plot

Join us for a series of lectures meant to help anyone turn their yard into an edible paradise. Learn to decorate your front lawn with edible ornamentals, turn your backyard into a living kitchen pantry, or grow your own medicine. Beginner gardeners can benefit from talks on vegetable gardening strategies, while experts at small-scale growing can expand their skills with knowledge of perennial fruits and vegetables. All can explore gardening beyond traditional crops with the series’ lectures on how novices can care for bees, mushrooms and livestock. Bring your questions, leave with notes, and grow with us!

Hearts for Human Rights Fundraiser

Postponed from February 9th – Join the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine (HHRC) on Thursday, February 9th for its third Hearts for Human Rights fundraiser. This year, the event is taking place at the Brunswick Hotel & Tavern from 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM. It should be a fun evening with good food, cash bar, music to enjoy performed by one of Maine’s multicultural choirs, Pihcintu, and a silent and live auction.

Each year, the HHRC reaches as many as 4,000 teachers and students with free outreach programs about civil rights, the Holocaust, and civil discourse; work that feels even more important today.

All proceeds from the event support the free educational programming provided by the HHRC.
Tickets are $40/person and $300/table of 8.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available! For more information, visit hhrcmaine.org or call 207.621.3530. We hope to see you there!
