Virtual Program: The American Dream: Building Your Financial Future

Join us for The American Dream: Building Your Financial Future, Tuesday, June 2, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

With the commoditization of planning by the financial media, it is more difficult for people to understand that there is a comprehensive process to building a financially secure future. Using the analogy of building a house, we cover the overall process of building a financially secure future. This class will provide a new paradigm of thinking. Instead of thinking something is bad or good, the question to ask is “Does this fit for me?”

The continuing uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and concerns about safety and challenges from increasingly hard to predict weather might have you wondering how you can have a productive vegetable, herb and fruit garden. With some planning you can easily grow your own fresh and healthy produce – whether in raised beds, mixed in with the flowers or in containers. You don’t need acres to have an abundant harvest!

This online workshop presented by Elizabeth Alakszay will teach you timesaving and sustainable methods on how to set up and select the fruits, berries, herbs and vegetables best suited for sustaining your family. Soil preparation, transplanting, care, irrigation, pest management, harvesting and preserving your harvest will be covered. Techniques for extending your season in the spring and fall will also be discussed.
