Healthy You and Purple Oasis
Friday, April 23
6-7PM | Zoom
Vel Scott has reimagined what once, what is now, and what could be along Frank Ave in Cleveland, OH. Neighbors have watched as the hidden beauty of the land was uncovered as a vacant plot of land gained a high tunnel, a green house, a pergola, and more as Vel Scott transformed the space into The Purple Oasis, an urban garden and farm. Join Vel Scott to learn about her journey and how you can get involved. The zoom link will be emailed to participants shortly before the program begins.
$5 member. $7.50 non-member.

Butterflies Belong Here
by Deborah Hopkinson
Sunday, May 16 | 1-3PM | Zoom
From their medicinal uses, to edible delicacies, to their ability to decompose just about everything, mushrooms have found a place in all
aspects of human life. In Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape our Futures, Merlin Sheldrake explores
these organisms. Join Loganberry Books, the Nature Center, and a fungi specialist to talk about this book, provide tips on mushroom hunting, and share some of the lore that surrounds this enormous Kingdom.
This program is free to attend. The optional $5 donation supports the Nature Center. Please purchase your book from Loganberry Books to support our partner.

In partnership with Loganberry Books.
