Did you know that milkweed is a Michigan native perennial and is the only source of food for the caterpillar that turns into the beautiful Monarch butterfly? Learn how to raise Monarch butterflies and milkweed during an upcoming luncheon at the W.K. Kellogg Manor House.
The W.K. Kellogg Manor House’s Garden Luncheon, set for noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, June 20, will pair instruction on providing a more inviting space for Monarchs with a delicious three-course meal that was grown with the help of pollinators. The menu will feature:
· Miso ramen soup and fried wonton skins served with sweet and sour sauce
· Grilled soy ginger sirloin steak over mixed field greens
· White chocolate mousse with fresh blueberries, lemon pound cake and mint
The cost of the program is $28/members, and $30/non-members. A wine menu will be provided.
