Join us for a Backyard Skills workshop celebrating the bounty of autumn.
Our latest four-week farm-to-table workshop explores the interconnected relationship between the garden and the kitchen. Through the lens of a seasonal ingredient, we will explore techniques to improve our gardens at home- skills like soil health, seed saving, cover crop, trellising, pest management, and more. Next, we will take the ingredient into the kitchen and learn a variety of traditional methods (fermentation, preservation, etc.) for transforming our harvest into healthy and delicious recipes. From farm to fork, we will be improving our skills and learning from our experts at The Ecology Center.
Each week’s class includes a culinary treat, recipes, and new gardening knowledge for your backyard, side yard, and patio endeavors.
