Urban Farming & Food Preservation

Posted on September 6, 2017 at 6:00 am

This fall, local gardeners can find a lot to love at our 5 seed libraries: Cheney, Deer Park, Fairfield, Medical Lake, and Otis Orchards.

Master Gardener Steve Nokes shares how to save seeds from your garden so you can share them with other library customers and for your next round of planting. For those with an interest in edible and nonedible fungi, Lynda Freeman is sharing her Mushroom Foraging knowledge. Our Produce Swaps continue at our seed libraries as well through the end of September.

Each month at Fairfield Library, from September through November, you can take a class about pickling, making jerky, and dehydrating produce from Food Preservation Specialist Anna Kestell. What a great way to enjoy your bounty!
