And for the courageous and open-minded, we can show you how to incorporate an undervalued source of protein into your diet. Inexpensive, nutritious, and delicious! Join us for Raising Insects for Food and Farm! Learn to work with aquatic, subterranean, terrestrial, and flying invertebrates for composting and pest management, as well as food for fish, animals, and, yes, humans!
