As we enjoy the summer heat and the bounty of summer vegetables and fruits, its also time to start preparing for your fall garden!
Join Chanowk as he shows you what to plant and grow now in your edible garden in preparation for fall! This class will focus on fall planting, especially the most popular fall staples -- cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, lettuce, winter squash and onion -- and what garden tasks you can do now.
Summertime brings the heat! Chili pepper heat, that is. Join us for an afternoon of harnessing the power of the pepper in a process called lacto-fermentation, and go home with your very own hot sauce starter. In this class, you will learn all about the health benefits of fermented foods! We will also provide a simple and safe step-by-step instruction so you can brew up your own probiotic goodies at home!
In addition to a hot sauce starter, you will walk away with several hot sauce recipes and a troubleshooting guide for caring for your hot sauce brew at home.
