Epigenetics Talk, Gardening Class for Families at Crossroads

Crossroads at Big Creek welcomes a Door County Medical Center program on April 15, 5-6 pm. Dr. Ronald Kodras will present “What Is the Epigenetic Clock and How to Slow It Down,” an explanation of epigenetics and how it affects the aging process.

Families are invited to a three-session sustainable-gardening class: an outreach program of Crossroads, Pat’s Patch Organics and the Door County Master Gardeners Association. Pat Thorp of Pat’s Patch – a certified organic truck farm near Baileys Harbor – and volunteers will teach participants how to start seeds in a greenhouse, make good garden soil, keep weeds under control, and grow and prepare their own vegetables. Participants must attend as a family – youth and children old enough to garden must have a parent or grandparent present to work with them – and all participants must be able to attend all three sessions on April 17, May 1 and May 15. Registration is required. Email the names and ages of the participating children and a phone number to [email protected]. A $15 materials fee will be collected at the first session.
