If you’re starting a backyard garden from scratch or want to up your game with the one you already have, this class is for you! You’ll learn what to plant and how to use what you grow, and then we’ll head to the kitchen to create seasonal recipes based on produce available throughout the season so you can be sure to enjoy the fruits (and vegetables!) of your labor. Instructors for this class will be Courtney Tchida, MSHS Community Programs Director, and Beth Jones, Executive Chef at the UMN Campus Club.
