UMaine Extension hosts Rogers Farm garden-to-table event July 18
University of Maine Cooperative Extension will hold its second in a series of four hands-on gardening and cooking workshops 5–7 p.m. July 18 at the UMaine Extension Master Gardener Volunteers demonstration garden, University of Maine Rogers Farm, 914 Bennoch Road, Old Town.
This Garden-to-Table workshop includes an onsite discussion and demonstration covering the bounty now ready for harvest and what still can be planted as late-season crops. With the harvest in hand, participants travel to the UMaine campus to help create some seasonal dishes. Laurie Bowen, UMaine Extension community education assistant; Rob Dumas, UMaine food science innovation coordinator and certified executive chef; and Extension Master Gardener Volunteers lead the workshop.
The sliding scale $0–$45 fee includes all materials and a light meal. Register on the event webpage by July 14. For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact 207.942.7396; firstname.lastname@example.org.
