Society Meeting – May 29

Society President Colleen Green opened a well-attended meeting [below left] with a special welcome to our guests from the Sophiasburgh 4H Flower Power Extravaganza Club [below right].


Following a brief recap on important upcoming events – the County Garden Show in June and the Members’ Picnic in July – and a mention of a few items of general interest, Colleen introduced the meeting’s guest speaker – Chef Tina Moorey – who would be speaking about cooking with herbs.

Chef Moorey got the presentation off to a good start by ‘volunteering’ a couple of audience members to move around the room offering simple and delicious treats such as beetroot hummus with cilantro served on a pita bread section.

Following the presentation, the audience had many questions and requests for advice, all of which were answered constructively and helpfully. Now pass me some more of that beetroot hummus …
