Home Grown: Garden to Table


Welcome! We are looking forward to a fun and informative evening!


Tonight we will be preparing Pumpkin Pie in a Jar, Cucumber Pickles and Pickled Radishes.


Everyone will get samples to take home.


If you chose not to participate in the preparation, you are welcome to have a seat and watch the canning demonstration by Ellie of Ellie Presents on the stage screen. 


If you will be joining us in preparation, be sure you have either a pink or an orange wristband to know if you will be preparing cucumbers or radishes. Everyone will be able to prepare pumpkin.
