We believe...

people should know how to buy, grow, harvest, preserve, and prepare local foods.

We are currently planning our Summer and Fall Workshops. We will update this page when we have more information. Feel free to check out our list of past events. As well as, our ideas for future workshops!

Past workshops from 2017: Beekeeping with Buzz and Grafting Workshop

Stay tuned for more 2017 workshops featuring topics such as fermentation, food preservation, pickling, canning tomatoes, pressure canning, freezing, dehydrating, container & straw bale gardening, DIY baby food and more!
