POSTPONED - Cooking From Your Garden with David McConnell | Workshop 1

LOGAN’S & RALEIGH CITY FARM present…

Cooking from Your Garden 

This first class in a series of classes with grower, David McConnell introduces the concept and technique of cooking from your garden, in your garden using the food you’re growing. We will focus on techniques that are conducive to a rustic outdoor environment using one or two cooking vessels over a camping stove, or even a small fire. Expect discussion around the importance of specialty produce and herbs (even edible weeds!) that are commonly misunderstood and underutilized in everyday cooking. We will cover proper harvesting techniques for garden vegetables and herbs to enable produce to thrive year after year (if perennials) and throughout the season (if annuals), and ways to use them that bring a new flare to your meals. Lastly, we’ll explore bringing your herbs inside into the kitchen for indoor growing. 

This series of workshops works in reverse, starting with the end result of cooking in your garden, and working back to getting your garden ready for propagation. You can attend one, or all of the classes in this series.

HOW TO RAISE MONARCH BUTTERFLIES with HELEN YOEST

LOGAN’S & RALEIGH CITY FARM in association with BEE BETTER present….

CELEBRATE NATIONAL POLLINATOR WEEK!

Wonder how YOU can help the Monarch butterfly!

In the last 20 years, the Monarch butterfly has declined by 90% and this declined has been traced back to early 1900s, and even more so on the West Coast with a decline of upwards  of 97%

The decline of the milkweed plant is in direct correlation with the decline the Monarch butterflies. Milkweed is the Monarch butterfly’s only host plant. Without milkweed, there will be no Monarch butterflies. 

By planting more milkweed, and raising eggs and larvae to adulthood, you can increase the chances of an egg reaching adulthood from just 5% to 95%. 

It’s easy. It’s fun. And it’s for the whole family!!!
