Kim London, chef and PMCF board member, showed 25 participants how to use the herbs they grow in the garden or purchase at the market.
The group, which met in the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens, listened as London talked about the many different uses of herbs. Then the group walked into the farm garden. They had the opportunity to smell and taste samples of the many different fresh herbs growing there. After answering audience questions, London treated the group to sample foods, such as herb butter, herbed roasted vegetables and a mint tea.
It was a beautiful evening at the farm, and thoroughly enjoyed by all participants.
More To Come
The next lecture, which is on growing tomatoes, will be lead by Murray Penney and held next Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Community Gardens.
Our tomato taste testing with Chef Rocco Verrigni has been delayed because the tomatoes haven’t ripened. We will have a tomato tasting and have tentatively re-scheduled it for the evening on September 13. Lectures are free and no registration is required.
On the next two Saturdays, free art classes for children ages 6 to 14 will be held in the gardens. Registration for these classes is necessary so we have enough supplies on hand. You can register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 587-2304. Classes start at 9 a.m. and an adult is asked to accompany the participants.
This Saturday, August 19th, children will make sunflowers out of paper. The following Saturday, August 26th they will be drawing and painting with local artists.
Don’t Miss This
Our sunflowers are blooming, come to the garden to meet them and take a photo. They are magnificent.
