Basil, Slow Food and Me Speaker

Iowa State University Extension

Mahaska County Master Gardeners are hosting Treva Reimer on Saturday, March 17 at 10 am at the Mahaska County Extension office; 212 North I Street, Oskaloosa. The presentation is open to the public; and there is no fee to attend. Prior registration is NOT required. Anyone who is interested in the topic is encouraged to attend.

Slow Food is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is part of a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members in over 150 countries, which links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment. Treva Reimer is Professor of Art at Central College. She has been a member of Slow Food USA for about 15 years and last summer was a delegate to Slow Food Nation in Denver, Colorado. She has grown about 40 different types of basil.

Mahaska County Master Gardeners are celebrating their fourteenth year. The local program organized after the county held their first training. The educational volunteer program, sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, provides current, research based, home horticulture information and education to the citizens of Iowa through programs and projects. Master Gardeners receive horticulture training, and volunteer to promote a mission of education and service. The program is open to anyone 18 or older with an interest in gardening and a willingness to use their knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to make a positive impact on their local community.

More information about this and other horticulture events can be found at the Mahaska County Extension Office; 212 North I Street; Oskaloosa Phone 641-673-5841; and www.extension.iastate.edu/mahaska/yardgarden.htm.
