The 2016 garden workshop schedule looked a little different than it has in years past. While workshops continued throughout the growing season, this year’s classes included more hands-on activities.
“I like the practicality of the workshops,” said LaDonna Tate, a Rosedale resident and community garden volunteer. Tate has attended all of this season’s garden workshops and is looking forward to the remaining classes.
If you want to join in on some of the fun, the final two workshops of the year are coming up. July’s workshop is “Insects in the Garden”, and August’s workshop, “Freeze! Your Garden Produce,” features information on food preservation.
Lori Wuellner, the family and consumer sciences coordinator for K-State Research and Extension, said of the food preservation workshop, “I’m always happy to teach these classes, as it’s very exciting that people want to revisit an age-old food process.”
“Insects in the Garden” is free and open to all ages. “Freeze! Your Garden Produce” is open to all ages, but will include a $5 fee to cover expenses. Attendees will take home a can of their own salsa.
