BOUNTIFUL GARDENS: Tips & Tricks for Small Space Gardening
Want to grow your own ORGANIC VEGGIES but are short on space? Health challenges keep you from bending down and working in the dirt? Learn to maximize the space you have or how to ‘create’ space by growing in containers.

HOMEGROWN GRAINS: Growing & Processing
Learn about growing grains on a home garden scale. Our speakers will briefly walk us through their personal experience with growing these staples from selection, planting, cultivation, harvest and processing, rounding out the presentation with culinary uses. The primary focus will be hands-on training on threshing, winnowing and cleaning to prepare wheat, corn, sorghum, amaranth, and rice for use in your kitchen. Stations will be setup and the students will work their way through the processes.

This event is free to all, from the experienced heirloom seed saver to those just starting to garden! This is a buy, sell, trade event.
No seeds? No problem! Everyone is welcome to join us!
