Whether you’re already a garlic fan or just learning to love this ancient yet beloved member of the allium family, this free workshop is for you. Drop in Fairfield Woods Branch Library anytime between 10 am and noon on Saturday, November 13, and head downstairs to:
- Learn how to plant, maintain and harvest garlic from organic farmer Patti Popp of Sport Hill Farm and herb and vegetable expert Sal Gilbertie of Gilbertie’s Herb Gardens.
- Discover the many ways to cook garlic and how it benefits and protects our health from Health & Cooking Coach Amie Guyette Hall of From Your Inside Out.
- Purchase seed garlic to plant in your own backyard this fall. You’ll enjoy the scapes in June and mature garlic in the fall.
