The Evansville Fund’s Chocolate Extravaganza is in the evening of February 16 and the Winter Indoor Market and Artisan Craft Fair is from 9-1 that day. We hope you can join us on the 16th or for some of these great gatherings at CSP. February 11 Beer Study is back. Tom Calley will talk us through the differences in beer from August Schell Brewing Co., Boston Beer Co., Inc, Lake Louie Brewing, and Three Floyds Brewing Co. At 7 pm on February 12 we’ll be joined by Mike Maddox. In August Mike started as the new director of the UW-Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Program. He’s been a horticulture educator with UW-Extension since 2001, working most of this time in Rock County. He’s also taught MGVs across the state and has been a frequent guest on Wisconsin Public Television’s Wisconsin Gardener and Wisconsin Public Radio’s Garden Talk. Join him as he talks about the Master Gardener program and about getting your trees ready for Spring. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ AARP/IRS Tax-Aide will be here from 10-2 on February 20 and March 20. Call for your appointment soon because they are filling up fast. Since 1968, a volunteer-based program has helped nearly 50 million low- to middle-income taxpayers prepare their return. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, an AARP Foundation program offered in cooperation with the IRS, helps low-to-moderate income taxpayers have more discretionary income for everyday essentials, such as food and housing, by assisting with tax services and ensuring they receive applicable tax credits and deductions. ________________________________________________________________________ On February 20 at 6:30 John Gishnock of Formecology will join us to talk about Sustainable Landscaping - Beauty Today ... And Green Tomorrow. Formecology is an Evansville company with a national reputation. At Formecology, LLC, sustainable landscapes are those designed, installed and cared for in a way that is beneficial to the environment, while also sustaining essential human function, health and well-being. Careful incorporation of natural elements in our creations benefits the environment and provides restorative benefits to site users in a functional environment designed to reduce stress, inspire creativity and capture the imagination. We consider human health and well-being an integral part of sustainability - for a landscape that does not consider human needs will not be long lived. John will also present Designing Attractive Native Gardens for Home & Business on March 21and Rain Gardens: Designing for Function and Beauty on April 23. It’s never too early to start planning your next getaway. On February 26 at 6:30, Kim Dooley of van Galder Bus Tours in Janesville will be on hand to tell us about all the great touring options available in 2013. Whether you are interested in scenery, shopping or just seeing this great countryside, Kim will have something to catch your interest. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ There’s much more to come at Creekside Place in the coming months.
