Kale expert to speak on Saturday

Kale has made a big comeback in recent years, and is once again commonly found in the backyard gardens of many Lower Mainland gardeners.

According to Sharon Hanna, author of the bestseller  The Book of Kale, this vegetable is “one of the earth’s most health-giving, nutrient-dense foods. Of all the vegetables, kale receives a whopping 1,000 out of 1,000 in the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index scoring system.”

During Nutrition Month, Langley Environmental Partners Society and the Murrayville Library invite the public to attend a presentation by Sharon Hanna on Saturday, March 15 at 3 p.m. at the Murrayville Library.  They can find out everything they want to know about growing and cooking with kale.

Phone the library at 604-533-0339 to reserve a seat for this free talk.

Murrayville Library is at 22071 48 Avenue in Langley.
