Join us for the June meeting of the Greater Newburyport Edible Garden Group focusing on Food Dehydration. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 18th at 7:00 PM in the Program Room of the Newburyport Public Library.
Marsha Bogart from South Hampton, NH, has been dehydrating meats, vegetables and fruits for several years now. She started learning to dehydrate to avoid wasting good, fresh, in-season food and found that dehydrated food is easy-to-do, delicious and is a great way to store food without having to freeze it. Marsha will share the resources that helped her learn, demonstrate how a food dehydrator works and will bring along some examples of her dehydrated food.
The Edible Garden Group was formed by community members who are interested in getting together to learn and share information about sustainable food growing – veggies, fruits, nuts. The meetings are focused on building community resilience through increasing the availability of safe, nutritious, sustainably-grown local food.
