Restaurant's farmer to speak at Green Drinks meeting
Submitted by McHenry County Green Drinks
On the first Wednesday of each month, environmentally-minded people gather upstairs at Duke's Alehouse & Kitchen to network and talk about "greening" the future. Everyone is welcome to attend the McHenry County Green Drinks from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3, at 110 N. Main St. in Crystal Lake.
August's meeting will feature Emily Zack, Duke's Alehouse and Kitchen's head farmer, talking about the restaurant's farm project. This is Emily's third season as Duke's head farmer, but she has been growing vegetables most of her life. She earned her associate degree in horticulture from MCC in 2009.
Emily will discuss the issues she deals with in growing on small pieces of land while having to produce large quantities of vegetables for the restaurant. She will also compare this season and last season and what worked and what didn't. Emily will touch on insects, diseases, weather-related problems and other issues she has had.
Join the meeting to learn what food additives, inferior ingredients and toxins you can simply remove to green up your diet.
Additional parking is available at the train station. For details, email GreenDrinks@mcdefenders.net or visit Facebook at www.facebook.com/GreenDrinksMcHenryCounty.
