Recipe for Change is a celebration of food with a purpose that supports FoodShare’s innovative work in schools. A tasting adventure unlike any other Recipe for Change includes a full meal composed of tasting plates and beverage accompaniments, plus unheard-of opportunities to mingle with 30 Chefs seldom found in the same room, let alone contributing to the same meal. Add the opportunity to taste 20 VQA wines, 6 local beers, and more, and at just $125 the event is an amazing value and wonderful opportunity to support FoodShare’s work to create a healthy future. We are thrilled to have City TV meteorologist and craft beer enthusiast Adam Stiles hosting this year's event!
Orlando Lopez and Liz Kirk will be teaching the techniques of seed starting - you will learn essential techniques for growing strong seedlings, make your own biodegradable, ready to plant seed starter pots, take home a seed tray with potted seeds and seedlings. You will also receive vegetable seeds that you could plant in your garden.More Details »
Join us for a Mead Making Workshop Led by Experienced Mead Maker Catherine Henderson!
Mead is honey wine and is the first alcoholic drink brewed, earlier than wine or beer. We will make a big batch, sample various brews, and talk about the finer points of mead and wine fermentation.
Just starting out, or been gardening for a bit and want to take it to the next level? By the end of this workshop you will leave with a garden plan you designed for your space, with expert help on the needs of your growing environment.
Participants leave with resources (planting schedule guide, annotated bibliography, seeds etc) and garden plan.
