DIY winter nutrition boosters
Winter nutrition is harder to come as we often rely on produce that is frozen, canned, or has traveled from a warmer climate.
Join us for this Homegrown Workshop where sustainability educator, Brooke Kornegay, will be discussing how to easily and successfully grow microgreens, winter baby greens and herbs. Participants will also learn how to make kombucha and will be invited to sample all of these homegrown nutrition boosters.
Participants can take home a 10"x 20" tray, potting mix, and micro greens seed for additional cost.
