Sample Farmigo produce and learn more about this incredible food community opportunity
Watch a cooking demonstration that used season, local produce! Madera mom, food entrepreneur and founder of HerbNZest, Deb Dutta, will be showing us how to whip up delectable spring time morsels such as mini-kale wraps. Participants will need to sign a release form, and students will need to be accompanied by their parents/guardians.
Also, there is a possibility that the local media will be there. Word about our awesome markets has gotten out, and folks are curious about just what we are getting up to! This is a great PR possibility for the school. In the event that the press wants to interview our farmers, parent/guardian permission will be secured beforehand.
Whew! I think that is it! See you there. Email me directly if you have any questions.
Molly Wahl, Madera Garden Coordinator
