Crystal Hartman Shout out for volunteer coordinator(s) for this Sunday (Jan 31, 12-4) and future Sundays.

I am usually unable to host the Sunday volunteer days and EPP is in need of a few volunteer coordinators who can
See More run the show. We want to keep the Sunday thing going, so please contact me if you are available regularly once or twice a month. Norm has graciously agreed to do the second Sunday of each month.

We are grateful for any time you can give.See Less

Crystal Hartman Oh, Lyndall has also offered to do a Sunday or two a month, and she just did one a couple weeks ago. Thanks Lyndall!28.01.2015 at 03:54 amGabriela Waschewsky This Sunday is Feb 1. I'm already committed to teach that day, but AE (after EarthSkills) I can take the first Sunday of each month.28.01.2015 at 10:29 am1view 5 more commentsBrian MonkeySoul Stanton The only reason why we did Sundays is because Michael Adlers religion.... many people have expressed preferences for Saturdays, especially because family and their religious purposes and students getting ready for school. I cant be around for at least another month.28.01.2015 at 01:58 pmCrystal Hartman Thank you Gabriela! I have you down for the first one of the month starting in march. Brian, I will consider switching it to Saturday. Let me confer with those concerned first. Thank you for the suggestion. I however, am usually in Perry each weekend.28.01.2015 at 02:01 pm1Brian MonkeySoul Stanton It would be cool to partner with OSAC, as they have work parties on Fridays at the student gardens. It would be nice to have satellite workshops to expand outreach and accessibility in town to available folks. Also the bus doesnt run Sundays, which has been a constant expressed barrier. Thanks Norm, Crystall, Lyndall, and Gabriela Waschewsky!28.01.2015 at 02:07 pm1Crystal Hartman Brian, OSAC is coming to EPP Sunday Feb 8 for our Project Propagation! Woot woot!28.01.2015 at 02:09 pm2Brian MonkeySoul Stanton Ya, we have kept a good relationship w them, especially the past officers. Kristin Balko is very knowledgeable and involved. If you have any innovative partnership ideas. Wilmot gardens has a propagation greenhouse. If we could forge an alliance it would be awesome to have a bldg core of volunteers and leaders. Michael Adler had presented to the Master Gardeners and I Wendy Wilbur and I have talked about getting them involved, as they are at Wilmot and other locales.28.01.2015 at 02:14 pm

Okinawa Spinach and Grits

Submitted by Campfire Dan Okinawa Spinach (Gynura crepioides) is a decorative green and purple, tall, shade-loving ground cover with edible leaves. okinawa-spinach-leaves2 My friends in Hawaii tell me it is renowned there along with its all green cousin as a cholesterol lowering food but I like it just because I believe that greens need to be a part of every meal and this one grows remarkably easily. It dies to the ground each winter but comes right back in the spring. Some people eat it in salads but I’ve found I eat far more greens if I cook them with other foods I like so I made up this breakfast recipe. It would work just as well for a quick hearty lunch. This recipe is good for 1-2 moderately hungry people! Ingredients: 1/2 cup coarsely chopped Okinawa Spinach leaves 1/4 cup Yellow Corn Grits 1 1/4 cup water 1 rounded tablespoon TVP (optional) Salt and Pepper to taste 1 tablespoon margarine (or butter) Topping (see below) Coarsely chop a handful of Okinawa Spinach leaves to about 1/4 cup packed tight. leaves-coarsely-chopped1 Microwave or simmer the corn grits in the water for about 3 minutes. They should be still soupy so adjust the time for your microwave or keep an eye on the pot if boiling on the stove! Add the coarsely chopped Okinawa Spinach leaves and microwave or simmer for another 1-2 minutes or until the grits firm up. add-chopped-leaves-to-partially-cooked-grits1 Garnish with some whole Okinawa Spinach leaves. I serve this to my vegan friends (and myself) topped as shown with vegan margarine and vegetarian nutritional yeast (one to two tablespoons of yeast per serving). My non-vegan friends like it with butter and/or various shredded cheeses as a topping and without the optional textured vegetable protein (TVP). serve-with-topping-and-garnish1 This recipe might as easily be called “Grits and Greens” since it works with just about any green you can eat raw or partially cooked. I’ve cooked it with regular spinach, India Lettuce (Lactuca indica), and the perennial leaf crops Pacific Spinach (Abelmoschus esculentus), Katuk (Sauropis androgynus) and Moringa leaves (Moringa oleifera). I like it with Okinawa Spinach best.
