What’s Happening Today – August 23, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife –
A new hands-on learning environment is coming to Choices Academy in Salisbury. The alternative school is teaming up with Salisbury’s Secretary of community Gardens Martin Hutchison to create a community garden on school grounds. The garden will include a hoop house and give students hand-on, inquiry-based learning.
We are learning about beautiful grasses that thrive and the spring and summer, and flower in the fall. Gardening expert, Ginny Rosenkranz from the University of Maryland Extension Office, shows us how we can get the most out of these hearty plants.
Today’s Pet Connect is a collection of dogs and cats that have some pretty unique personalities. They are also waiting for someone to provide a place to call home.
Another DelmarvaLife, another delicious dish we’re looking forward to sharing with you. Chef Norris Anthony of Catch 54 in Fenwick shows us how to make Scallops with Avocado/Lime Puree.
