new classes for 2013

I’ve partnered with the Glastonbury Parks and Recreation Department and the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension Service to develop a lecture/workshop series entitled, Glastonbury Grown: Gardening and Eating Locally. Here’s the series description from the Parks and Rec catalog :

Eating locally and sustainably is a theme that has grown in importance in the United States since its beginnings in Alice Waters’s kitchen in Berkeley. How do we accomplish this in Glastonbury with our cooler climate and our all-too-busy lives? This new program offers six one-night presentations that explore ways to take ownership of the food you grow or buy, eat, and serve to your families; it includes a mix of sustainable gardening and local food topics. The series has been developed by long-time resident, locavore, and author Jackie Callahan Parente in conjunction with the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension System. 

Check out the Classes page for more information. The Parks and Rec Department will handle registration for these classes.
