We’re very excited for our head farmer Mike Biltonen’s lecture this week at Third Ward on heirloom apples. He will be discussing the four seasons of growing apples, and the history of apples in literature, art, and cuisine. Q and A will follow.
I’ve created a fun trivia on apples – two winners will be chosen; the prize being two tickets to the lecture (monetary value of $40). Below are the trivia questions – please send a response back to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday evening. If you’re interested in attending the lecture but missed the registration deadline, you can purchase a ticket through me via e-mail. As a reminder, the lecture is this Thursday from 7 – 9:30pm.
