Canning, Pickling and Nutrient Dense Gardening Workshops at Millstone Farm

As the fall seasons approaches, gardeners and cooks start to prepare for the months and year ahead. It’s the perfect time to learn some practical new skills. How can we preserve bountiful late summer harvests like tomatoes? What do we do with a bonanza of cucumbers to avoid waste and create new taste sensations? What can we do differently in our gardens to grow the most nutritious foods possible? Millstone Farm has workshops to help you become skilled at each!

Gleaning Food for the Hungry from Local Farms

The Millstone Farm “Glean Team” made its first visit to the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County on Friday, February 24 with a donation of 32 pounds of spinach gleaned from The Hickories, a family-owned farm in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Although gleaning is usually thought of as a warm-weather activity, Dina Brewster of The Hickories offered a crop of winter spinach to the Glean Team, prompting the inaugural event.
