The class is limited to 12 participants and pre-registration is required with the library.

 Using garden’s bounty

“We will talk through important ways to use garden produce to their maximum potential for use now and later, slow cooker safety dos and don’ts and share some delicious recipes,” according to the flyer.

The program is titled “Using Your Garden’s Bounty in Your Slow Cooker.”
