New nutrition and wellness classes:

• For the Locavores - Preserving the Harvest: Learn many ways to preserve the bounty to keep your locavore habits alive and well when the cold winds blow. Though we will cover water bath canning, the class will focus more on new twists to preserving foods and how to creatively use preserved foods for convenience and health for the busy family.

• Healthy Recipe Exchange: We love a good potluck! We love the food, the conversations, and the community. Bring your family and a favorite healthy dish to pass. We challenge you to bring dishes that are from scratch, whole grain, low in sugar, and include fruits and/or vegetables.

• Save Your Own Seeds: This fun workshop will introduce you to the exciting world of seed saving by looking at different plants and how to collect seeds from them.
