For those schools that are planning to celebrate Michigan Asparagus Month by serving some of the yummy green spears on their food service lines, there are still a good number of Michigan asparagus posters left to help you promote your efforts in the cafeteria! Please send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 517.432.0310 by Friday, May 18th to indicate the number of posters you would like and the address to which to send them by mail. Posters will be available on a first-come first-serve basis while supplies last. The poster is also available for download and printing, along with recipes and some other asparagus info, on the Michigan Farm to School homepage at www.mifarmtoschool.msu.edu. Additionally, check out this new Michigan Fresh Asparagus fact sheet from MSU Extension - http://msue.anr.msu.edu/programs/mi_fresh.
