I usually try to post the handouts/presentations from all of my classes on the blog, and I realized that I never posted my presentation from the Planting & Preserving Workshop back in February.
I realized in looking through the slides that I didn’t really have any speaker’s notes included. If you have questions after looking through the slides, please feel free to leave a comment or send an email and I’ll try to help you out.

Our last Saturday Sampler of the year will be this Saturday, September 21st at 9 a.m. here in the Demonstration Garden. We will be featuring fall vegetables in the recipes and discussing fall gardening techniques.
Also – bring your ideas for topics you might like to see next year!
Our next Saturday Sampler will be this coming Saturday, July 13th. We will begin at 9 a.m. in the classroom area of the Demonstration Garden. The topic for this month is Basil. We have several different varieties of basil in the garden this year, so we are going to be looking at those different types and how they could be used for healthful cooking in your kitchen.
Remember, the farmers market is going on, so you should plan a little extra time to park and walk to the garden area, if you aren’t going to come early and shop!
No registration is required and the class is free, so come on out!
