New Workshops This Winter!

The Food Project is excited to announce that we will be offering a variety of new workshops this winter through our "Grow Well, Eat Well, Be Well" workshop series!

Our gardening workshops are taught by TFP staff and youth, and will focus on growing food during the winter and preparing your garden for the spring. During our cooking workshops, The Food Project invites local gardeners and cooks into our kitchen to share recipes from their respective cultures. Participants cook together and then celebrate with a sit-down meal. 

Participants are welcome to bring children to any of our workshops. Fun and structured children's activities will be available during all Saturday workshops.

This winter, the workshops will include:

  • Planning Your Garden - An introduction to garden planning, including basic principles of garden design, techniques for maximizing space, and tips for ordering seeds.
  • Growing Indoors: Containers & Sprouts - Tips and techniques for starting seeds inside your home.
  • Planning and Planting Basics - Basic principles for planning and planting in raised bed gardens.
  • Getting Started Early - How to prepare and plant your garden early so you can harvest by May.
  • Cooking with Your Neighbor: Chinese Cuisine - Learn to make several Chinese dishes, including dumplings, garlic eggplant, and a traditional cold dish.
  • Cooking with Your Neighbor: Guyanese Cuisine - Learn to prepare tasty Guyanese recipes.
  • Cooking with Your Neighbor: Cape Verdean Cuisine - Explore traditional Cape Verdean dishes, including vegetarian cachupa.
