Breast Cancer Support- Growing Goodness


As you move forward from cancer treatment, one of the many pieces of advice a survivor hears is to “eat healthy.” One way to eat healthy is to grow your own vegetables in a garden.


The “Splash of Color” meeting is Thursday, May 9 from 5-7 pm. It will be held at Waterloo Public Library, 415 Commercial Street in Waterloo.  Sally Browne, Master Gardner Intern will present on the topic “Small Space Vegetable Gardening.”


This FREE event is open to all women of color living with breast cancer.  Refreshments are provided by Panera Bakery-Café. Activities are planned from 5 to 7 p.m., but participants can come and go as their schedules allows. Child care is available, but must be pre-arranged.
