The Cherokee Soil and Water Conservation District is accepting recipes and anecdotes to include in a cookbook they will be publishing entitled "The Farmer's Wife".
The District would like to include in the cookbook stories of how you had to come up with a meal to feed many in a short time, or how to "fend for yourself" in the field.
Cookbooks should be ready for purchase by the middle of November. Proceeds will be used for conservation education and development.
Please mail your stories and recipes to the Cherokee SWCD - 314 Lake Street -- Cherokee, IA 51012 by Sept. 1 or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your help is greatly appreciated.
