Corinne Quinn from the Network for a Healthy California conducts a cooking workshop at the VPG featuring spaghetti squash. Here's the recipe she used to make a spaghetti squash and cucumber salad: - This is a great vegetarian recipe to use for Thanksgiving. If you don't know what spaghetti squash looks like, here it is.

Posing in front of Kent's '66 Ford green pick up are members of the California Conservation Corp , who spent a busy day with us at the VPG.
