Local Foods Classes Update
My Vegetables in Containers class at Brooklyn Botanic Garden this coming Saturday 18th is sold out, but I’ll be teaching the same subject as well as Herb Gardening at Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture the following Saturday 25th. If you’ve never been to Stone Barns, it’s a short train ride or drive out of the city and well worth the day trip. The grounds are gorgeous and you can see where they grow and raise most of the food for Blue Hill Restaurant, which is right across the corridor from where I’ll be teaching.
On Sunday 26th I’ll be teaching Eating Local in the Big Apple at the New York Botanical Garden. This is your chance to pick my brains about the ways I’ve discovered to stick to locavorian menus while on a limited budget and with a hectic city work schedule. The class is part of a special exhibition going on now through September 13th called The Edible Garden. In addition to food-related classes there are wonderful exhibition food gardens and cooking and gardening demonstrations to enjoy.
More info on the classes and how to register is here. Hope to see you at one of them!
