Gardening for Greater Health : John Bagnulo Returns to Penobscot Bay YMCA
Fourth Talk in Series
Join John Bagnulo, Ph.D, for a free talk about gardening techniques to improve your health. Bagnulo's presentation takes place on Tuesday, May 21, from 6:30 – 8 p.m. in the Penobscot Bay YMCA Community Room.
Bagnulo will discuss basic gardening approaches that can put the best, healthiest fruits and vegetables on your table. He will describe techniques that will improve the nutrient density of what you grow, eliminate the need for harmful chemicals and maximize your harvest. This lecture will be sure to give you something to chew on before planting this spring.
This program is co-sponsored by Pen Bay Healthcare’s Picker Family Resource Center and the Penobscot Bay YMCA in service to improving the health and quality of life of our community. There is no need to RSVP.
Bagnulo earned a Master of Public Health from the University of North Carolina and a Ph.D. in Nutrition and Food Science from the University of Maine. He lectures and teaches programs nationally in the area of nutrition and disease prevention/reversal. He recommends that individuals look more closely at the volume of flour and cereal products they are eating, how these foods may be displacing what is nutritionally most important, how they are responding metabolically to the various sources of sugar in their diet and what foods are actually providing significant nutrients to their body.
Pen Bay Healthcare's Picker Family Resource Center promotes building community by providing health resources and support that serve the needs of women and their families throughout their lives. The Center’s hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information visit: www.penbayhealthcare.org/pickercenter or call 596-8950.
