This is our CROP SWAP meeting at the Newbury Park Library at 6:15-8:00pm. Bring your extra garden produce to share. You can cut it up for tasting or make a dish for a potluck. Please bring your favorite recipes to share also. It will be a wonderful evening for trying and learning new things and a great chance to talk with friends--new and old! We will have plates, forks and cups.
