I know I’ve teased you and hinted at the Saturday Samplers programs a couple of different times and I keep forgetting to write a blog post about them.
This series is a way for you to come get a free “sample” of our gardening and cooking programs this summer! One Saturday a month we will be meeting at 9 a.m. in the Demonstration Garden at the Sedgwick County Extension Education Center (21st St N & Ridge Rd) to feature growing and cooking a different vegetable or herb. Participants will learn cooking and nutrition tips, timely gardening tips, and get a tour of the demonstration garden.
All Saturday Samplers are free and no registration is required. The Kansas Grown! Farmers’ Market will be going on in the parking lot, so participants are encouraged to plan accordingly.
