Organizing 2019 Classes/Events

Hello Home Grown members and not yet members!
As Home Grown is preparing and organizing our 2019 classes/events, we hope your new year is off to a fabulous start. I know all this snow we are getting is really helping the trees and plants and it is a good time to plan out your gardens and for us to plan out the Home Grown New Mexico classes. We are excited about several new things on the horizon we want to share with you.

We are gearing up for an exceptional season of supporting our members with gardening, preservation, fermentation and cooking classes to help us all create a more sustainable life for ourselves whether you live in the city or countryside.

We will start our season with the Seed Exchange which will take place at Frenchy’s Barn from 4-6 pm on March 13th.

These are a SAMPLE of just a FEW of the classes on the line-up this year (class dates TBD):
FERMENTATION-Learn to Make Kimchi class
COOKING OUTDOORS-Solar Cooking class
PRESERVATION-“What’s Jamming’-Learn to make and can homemade jams during our fruit season
BEES-Build a native bee house class
GARDENING-Learn How do Drip Irrigation systems for gardeners
FOOD-Learn to Make Gnocchi class

and many more classes to come...

We are working on dates for all our classes right now.
We wish you all the best success in your endeavors as the season gets underway. Stay tune for the classes to be released in late February. Together let’s make this one the best year yet!
