Everyone welcome.

Celebrate the culture and taste of the summer garden!

This hands-on workshop will celebrate the culture and bounty of the summer garden and of vegetarian cooking from harvest to the plate. Our days together will begin and close with meditation, focusing in the morning on the fundamentals of organic gardening and in the afternoon on savory home-cooking from the garden.
