Come celebrate Earth Day in Santa Fe on April 21st-10 am to 2 pm at the Railyard Park. Free workshops and demos, vendors, music and more! Come visit our table, Home Grown New Mexico and see what great classes/workshops we are having for 2018. We are all about growing, raising, harvesting, cooking and preserving homegrown food using organic and sustainable methods for urban gardeners. If you like to grow food, you should join us for some classes or better still become a member.
The first two Home Grown New Mexico classes have been completed. Both were great!
The first class pictured above, a Biochar workshop by Michael Reed was on March 25 down in South Valley, Albuquerque and the participants learned about biochar, what it is and watched how to do a burn to make biochar and then took a tour of Michael Reed’s property.
The second class pictured above, a Miso workshop by Nao Sadewic, was last Sunday, April 8th here in Santa Fe. It was great learning about koji, miso and other Japanese foods. We had samples of different foods made with koji, a slide presentation and a demo on how to make miso.
The Miso class is this coming Sunday, April 8th. THE CUT OFF IS TODAY (THURSDAY) FOR SIGN UP SO HURRY. YOU MUST SIGN UP AND PAY BELOW IF YOU WANT TO COME!
Sunday, April 8th—12 noon to 2 pm
