This fall we will host several workshops at the GFN Community Farm at 140 Meadow…
We are excited to announce a series of in-person springtime workshops for youth ages 8-12, at Grow Food Northampton’s Giving Garden!
Each workshop will feature a recipe prepared on site, and we will explore and interact with the garden as we learn about pollinators, plant parts, and more.
Be the Bee: Dandelion Honey
May 21st, 4:00-5:30 pm.
Visit the beehives for an interactive lesson on pollinators, and learn how to prepare syrupy “dandelion honey” from native flowers.
Roots & Shoots: Wild Pesto
May 28th, 4:00-5:30 pm.
Spend time in the Giving Garden to harvest chives, and discover some of the wild edible greens growing in the fields and woods around us, which we will turn into a tasty pesto.
Pick & Preserve: Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
June 4th, 4:00-5:30 pm.
Prepare a strawberry rhubarb jam, and learn about the value of preserving the seasonal harvest!
Standard covid-safety social distancing guidelines will be followed, and masks are required. Please wear close-toed shoes, and appropriate clothing for outdoor play and garden work.
