NMCAC’s Winter Dinner Series continues on Tuesday, March 25th at Grow Benzie. Three distinguished, local environmentalists will lead a panel discussion to define the crucial role trees play in the quality of our water.
Join David Milarch of Archangel Ancient Tree Archives (AATA), District Forester Kama Ross and Mike Jones of the Benzie Conservation District to discuss how trees filter water and provide a cleaning effect in our atmosphere and how forest management programs protect our water supply.
The dinner, which will begin at 6:00pm on March 25, 2014,will include a selection of hearty casseroles (including vegetarian), as well as seasonal salad, fresh bread, dessert and beverages. We are pleased to feature products from some of the entrepreneurs at Grow Benzie’s new incubator kitchen, including breads from Betsie Bay Breads and hot fudge sauce from In Great Taste! Grow Benzie will again host the event at their main facility on M-115 in Benzonia. All area residents are welcome!
There is a suggested donation fee of $8/person with all “profits” going towards NMCAC’s 2014 Culinary Scholarship fund, to be awarded to a Benzie County student. NMCAC has already raised nearly $500 for our scholarship fund this year, thanks to all who have attended our previous events and contributed their expertise as keynote speakers!
Reservations are not required for this event. However, if you plan to attend, please send a simple (non-binding) reply to this email so that we can better estimate our food needs.
