Dining with the Docs Print E-mail

Denise Richardson, Registered Dietician, presents "Urban Gardening for Rural Health,"  on Tuesday, March 31 at noon at the Harrisville branch of the Alcona County Library.  Small scale gardening is more than fresh veggies!  Caring for small gardens promotes physical activity and improves mental health, and the produce enriches daily meals with vitamins and anti-oxidants.  Light lunch included, as well as samples and recipes for garden produce.  Call 989-724-6796 to register for this FREE program.  This program is a cooperative effort through the Alcona Health Center and the Alcona County Library to bring health information to Alcona citizens.
