Emily this is for you...and thanks for asking!
So this past Tuesday, March 19th, was our latest Relief Society Enrichment Night. We chose a garden party-gardening theme.

-Our hostess talked about her 4 chickens and building their adorable coop. How she built, started and has maintained her own raised garden.
-Barbara Harrison then gave a little class on freezer jam...we each got to make our own little 4 oz. jar right there to take home, delicious!
