1. Garden Demonstrations in the Pantry

    All year long we host short, drop-in gardening demonstrations in the food Pantry and Pantry Garden, in order to teach about different methods and considerations to grow fresh produce.   For 2015 we will be holding demos every week on Tuesdays between 12:00pm and 4:00pm and Thursdays between 12:00pm and 1:00pm.   Be sure to check them out when you shop, or just drop in to participate!
