Sad News about our Founder and President: Cass Turnbull

We here at PlantAmnesty are deeply saddened to have to announce the sudden and unexpected death of Cass Turnbull, while vacationing in Hawaii with her husband. She suffered a fatal heart attack after a swim.


She was the power, the energy, the humor and the magic behind PlantAmnesty. We will miss her terribly.

Meeting of Like Minds
When: Tuesday, February 21st
Where: CUH
Time: 7-9 pm

Speaker: Lisa Steele, "Gardening with Chickens"

Chickens and gardening go hand in hand, but if you don't do some pre-planning and supervising, your flock will happily trample, scratch up and gobble up all your prized produce. Learn how to incorporate chickens into your gardening to the mutual benefit of both. Chickens are nature's aerators, tillers, fertilizers and bug control and are wonderful garden helpers through all four seasons.
Lisa Steele is a 5th-generation chicken keeper, Maine Master Gardener, aspiring herbalist and coop to kitchen cook in addition to being a top-selling author and the creative mind behind the Better Homes & Gardens award-winning blog Fresh Eggs Daily® (
Lisa engages fans worldwide on her Facebook page of the same name with her easy, fun and accessible approach to raising backyard flocks naturally. She inspires both the newcomer and the seasoned chicken keeper alike to grab a pair of kitchen shears and head out to the herb garden on their way to the chicken coop.
