Join Melissa Goltermann of Momma G Farms as we introduce you to a selection of easy-to-grow plants and explain how you can add them to meals

In Florida, we are able to grow many edible plants that have nutritional value and are good for your overall health. In this program, led by Melissa Goltermann of Momma G Farms, we will introduce you to a selection of easy-to-grow plants and explain how you can add them to your daily meals. These awesome plants are not only edible but also make a beautiful addition to your lawn or garden.

In this program, you’ll sample some edible leaves and learn easy ways to grow them in your lawn or garden.

This program is presented by Melissa Goltermann and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

About the Presenter:  

Melissa Goltermann started her healing journey after 10 years of being on pain management due to a serious car accident. She found the medication was only masking her symptoms and she searched for ways to heal her body. Coming off the medication was not easy, and her body is still healing. Moringa was the first thing she used to help in her healing journey. Her mission is to educate others on how plants can be a part of a healthy healing diet. She offers free classes to children and adults at her not-for-profit food forest farm Momma G Farms, located in Eustis, Florida. She has been growing and using Moringa for over 10 years.
