Today on DelmarvaLife:
Assateague Coastal Trust’s 18th Annual Native Plant Sale is May 6 from 8 am-1 pm at the Assateague Coastal Trust Office in Berlin, Md. Buyers will not only be stocking their garden with delicious produce, they will also be helping to preserve and propagate special seeds and bolster biodiversity to boot. All the plants are grown from heirloom seeds. Vegetables and fruits grown from heirloom seeds often produce more colorful and tasty treats, many with intriguing names and fascinating lineages. View the selection on ACT’s website at www.ActForBays.org. Pre-order veggies, fruits, herbs and native perennials before they sell out. Pick up orders, or select from the remaining varieties available on the day of the sale. For more information, contact ACT at 410-629-1538.
A year ago, we met 5-year-old Alex Wood of Ocean City. Alex and his mom, Amy, told us about a diagnosis that changed their lives. Doctors found a tumor in Alex’s brain. However, that did not slow Alex down one bit and we’re happy to report that Alex is active, happy, and healthy today. In fact, Alex and Amy join us in the studio today to give us an update on Alex and tell us about the Raymond A. Wood Foundation. The organization supports survivors of childhood brain tumors and their families by providing a means to get devices or therapies that may help with ongoing chronic conditions that result from brain tumor treatment. Listen to Alex’s story here.
