The Springfield Plateau Chapter Christmas Party, as designed by Karolyn Holdren, was a success as measured by the babble of voices and the intake of food. The Master Naturalist Choir was led by Bob Tosca-ninney Ranney in his Christmas Cantata "The Barber of Jay". The White Elephant gift exchange had everything including a kitchen sink, and the last minute silent auction raised over $670.
Since plants just grow without feeling or reacting to the environment, it makes sense that they don't mind being eaten... or do they? Bob Ranney sent me this New York Times Link which makes you think twice about that.
