Gretty facilitated the art making activity where the participants created handmade cards with pressed herbs and leaves from the garden. Then, many of the the Foundation’s volunteers created wonderful recipes that included ingredients from the garden into the afternoon snacks! Thanks again to all who took time to prepare the great and healthy café snacks! The recipes are included below. Special thanks to Gretty and her vision and guidance. Enjoy a recipe or two…..
