    I believe there is a mistake for the event at the Bowen Farmstead. Is if Saturday of Sunday? The 23rd is a Sunday? My husband and I just joined the DC chapter and were thinking about coming. Thank you, Kathy Sykes

    Bring #the Siouxchef to DC. How to cook with indigenous foods from the woods, the bay, the meadows. No butter, salt pepper.
