THIS SATURDAY: SAMPLE A PAW PAW! BUY SOME FRUIT! PLANT A TREE!
This Saturday from 1 to 4pm -- as part of our 9th anniversary celebration and our American Promise paw paw IPA release -- come meet farm and garden expert Casey Roe!
Casey will set up and host a paw paw pawpup. Featuring:
-- samples of pawpaw fruit!
-- cultivated and wild pawpaws for sale (while they last!)
-- "Pawpaw: In Search of America's Forgotten Fruit" book for sale
-- handouts on How to Eat a Pawpaw, Pawpaws 101, How to Start Pawpaws from Seed and How to Grow Pawpaw Saplings
-- contests to win a signed copy of the new pawpaw book, For the Love of PawPaws
At 2pm, Casey and Fullsteam founder (and fellow paw paw enthusiast) Sean Lilly Wilson will go on stage to chat paw paws, pass around some paw paw treats, and take on all your paw paw questions.
