Eat it to save it: Slow Food's Ark of Taste

You've heard about Slow Food's Ark of Taste in our newsletters. You've seen Ark of Taste varieties at our plant sale. Now you can learn even more about the Ark of Taste's mission to save delicious and distinctive foods from extinction. This class will begin with an overview of Slow Food's Ark of Taste. Then we will explore heritage foods that are significant to class participants' own cultural and culinary backgrounds and discuss how we can keep these traditions alive. Finally, we will sample Ark of Taste foods and compare these heirloom varieties to their conventional counterparts. Participants will each receive Ark of Taste seeds for their gardens.

This class is led by Slow Food Huron Valley leadership team members, Janet Osborn, Sofia Gaudioso, Kimberly Hartley, and Lauren Moscoe.

Tips on SIPS

SIPS (self-irrigating potting systems) are becoming more popular everyday, in large part due to the evolution of the water conservation movement/mentality. Modernization and availability of tools and fittings make these systems a tangible reality for the average Joe/Josephine.

Advanced Master Gardener and Master Composter: Jesse Raudenbush, explores the finer details of how SIPS work AND completes the build process of a “Rain-gutter Grow system” (with class participation). The perfect setup for patios or other limited spaces where container pots are the only option.. Ties right into your rain barrel!

Though this is partly hands-on, students should be prepared to take notes or photo document. 
Class size is limited. Registration is $5.   Please register here.    Minimum age 12 (accompanied by adult).
