Raised Beds for Beginners
6:00 PM

Join Master Gardener Joe Daniels as he shows you how to get the most out of your vegetable garden using less space, time and effort. Raised garden boxes are easier to plant, weed, water, and harvest than in-ground beds.

Understanding Cash Flow - A Business Survival Guide
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Sales and earnings are not enough to survive, just ask W.T. Grant who had consistent earnings growth, yet went bankrupt. Ask Bernie Madoff, whose Ponzi scheme would have gone on had it not been for the lack of new cash inflows. In fact, the number two cause of business failures is not knowing the difference between earnings and cash! Additionally, understanding the value of time in the cash equation is critical to business survival. This seminar, presented by Chester and Delaware County SCORE and Tom Faughnan, will help you to better understand the differences between cash and earnings as well as provide some suggestions as to how to maximize cash.
