This is group was founded to help anyone interested to learn how to grow their own food. We will help install gardens, do demos of different growing techniques, and provide assistance for people to enable themselves. We are attempting to build community. All our meetings are open to anyone who is interested in growing their own food for those who wish to contribute or help in this endeavor.
Please let me know if you are interested having help with your garden or if you'd like to play a larger role in the group.
Join Brittany Florio, Sustainable Food Systems Specialist, for a 60-minute virtual workshop in which we’ll discuss the properties of popular kitchen herbs (maybe you’ve already got some in your garden) and different methods for safely preserving them to enjoy throughout the winter months.

Many of our common kitchen herbs (basil, rosemary, sage and thyme, for example) are powerhouses in the culinary and medicinal world, and easy to grow at home. Learn to keep them handy all year round! In this workshop, we’ll share simple and fun preservation techniques, including drying, freezing, infusing, and curing. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have all the info and inspiration you need to preserve and enjoy herbs throughout the seasons.
Cost for the workshop is $1 - 25+ (sliding scale).
This workshop is part of the Rhinecliff Sustainability Series produced by Backyard to Table in partnership with the Morton Memorial Library.
