By now the garden should be bringing us ripe tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, tasty greens, and other veggies and fruit… but what to do with all this bounty?
Join us for a day of workshops focused on Preserving the Harvest! We’ll start at 10am with a workshop on Canning and Drying food with Clara Morris of the Cowtown Grangers. After lunch at noon, we’ll reconvene for an Intro to Fermentation class (covering Kombucha, Sauerkraut and more) at 1pm with Eileen Roscina Richardson of Cook and Culture. Be ready for hands-on lessons. Kombucha "mothers" available for purchase!
