A Gardener's Weekend!

This weekend there are two wonderful events with gardening workshops galore, to get pumped for the spring season!

On Saturday, March 26, from 11 am - 5 pm, the Boston Natural Areas Networks will be holding their 36th Annual Gardeners Gathering at the Curry Student Center at Northeastern University. From their website: "Gardening workshops for community and residential gardeners for both beginner and experienced gardeners. Enjoy networking, door prizes, info gallery, community garden awards, and more! All invited to join with more than 300 community gardeners to welcome spring. Free event, all welcome, walk-in registration..." For more information about the event, click here.

On Sunday, March 27, from 10 am - 4 pm, is Bountiful Brookline's annual Spring into Gardening event at the Pierce School at 50 School St., Brookline, MA. A day full of workshops, panels, keynote speech given by Greg Watson, a demonstration area, children's activities, and more. General admission is $10/person, $20/family. Or if you volunteer at the event for 2 hours, general admission is FREE. If you're interested in volunteering, contact bountifulbrooklineevent [at] For more information on the event, go here.

I will be teaching a Food Preservation and Fermentation Workshop at Spring into Gardening at 2 pm: "This workshop will provide a brief overview of various methods of food preservation, including drying herbs, canning, and fermenting. Emphasis will be on fermentation. This workshop will include a demonstration on how to make sauerkraut."

I am looking forward to the workshop and I hope to see you there!
