Jackie Swift will host a "Little Kitchen Herb Gardens" workshop at the Fredonia Farmers' Market this Saturday at 10:30 a.m. Swift will show adults and children how to create, use, and care for a culinary herb garden. She will also share some of her experience with organic farming, which she has promoted with her farm, Rainbow's End, since the 1970s.
The cost for this workshop is $12 and participants will get to take home their own little kitchen herb gardens. Early registration is encouraged as space will be limited. Call 640-5401 for more information or to sign up.
Community members might also want to join the Fredonia Farmers' Market Book Club, which will hold its first discussion on July 7 at 10:30 a.m. The first book in this series is "The Quarter Acre Farm" by Spring Warren. All are invited to read this non-fiction novel about one woman's experience with self-sufficiency farming and join FFM vendors and customers in an open discussion.
Jackie Swift will lead the Little Kitchen Herb Garden Workshop.
