We hope to continue to have these monthly through the year.

The September 12th workshop we will discuss extending your garden through the fall and winter and preserving your harvest: How best to grow winter greens; how to store root vegetables/winter squash.  Bring all your canning questions! We’ll be joined by a chef and a canning expert.
