scarletnantes.pngPresented by Larry Stebbins, Pikes Peak Urban Gardens

In what has become a tradition, Larry Stebbins, the pied piper of vegetables in Colorado Springs, will present our January library lecture. Come hear how Queen Elizabeth I almost poisoned her guests by serving the wrong part of a vegetable. Learn what color carrots were three hundred years ago. Do you know what vegetable was found in Montezuma’s garden in 1519 by the invading Spaniards? All of this and more will be included in this light-hearted but informative presentation. It will be a guaranteed good time for fun and old alike.

Free to all at the East Library, 5550 E. Union Blvd.
