Joe Listro, farm manager of Sullivan Farm in New Milford, will demonstrate how to grow leafy greens, including kale, collards, spinach, arugula, mustard greens, Swiss chard and Asian greens all season.
Anne Gallagher, chef/owner of Upstairs Kitchen in New Preston, and Madeline Leonard, chef at Northville Market in New Milford, will demonstrate how to prepare what many consider the most nutritious foods on the planet.
Judea Garden, the Giving Garden,
in Washington is entering its fifth season of providing fresh vegetables to neighbors in need.
Located in Steep Rock's Macricostas Preserve and supported by St. John's Episcopal Church and the town of Washington, Judea Garden and its volunteers have grown and distributed more than 15,000 pounds of fruit and vegetables to local food banks and soup kitchens.
Volunteers are vital to this project. Work is not limited to the garden; other areas of help include delivery, set-up, letter writing and cooking.
