August 27 Special Event:
*** TOMATO CANNING SESSION***
The farmers market will offer seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, and local foods. Our Grill Benzie Food Truck will be there selling fresh food with ingredients grown onsite or sourced locally. We will also be offering free daily nutrition and culinary demonstrations at 3:30 and 5:00, open to the public. You can also take this time to grab your family and walk our edible trail system that lines the property or play through our edible mini golf course!
Tomato Canning Session:
This drop-in session, lead by Chris, mom of Grow Benzie’s executive director, Josh Stoltz, will introduce people to the basics of canning. Observe, learn, and, if you feel like it, lend a hand. You can drop in for five minutes or stay for the entire session. Chris will be canning local tomatoes for use later in the year. Everyone is welcome. This workshop aims to expose more people to the art of food preservation and to provide them with the information to preserve food at home.
Free! Donations welcome. Time TBA.
