Shake off the winter blues at 6th annual beds & breakfast event
by Vince Baglivo/February 1, 2017
Want to get a jump on the 2017 growing season? Looking for ideas for your garden or a food business? Maybe something new to prepare for dinner? Join other community gardeners, urban farmers, food entrepreneurs and cooking enthusiasts at Greater Newark Conservancy’s Outdoor Learning Center, 32 Prince Street (between South Orange Avenue and Springfield Avenue) for the 6th Annual Beds & Breakfast Winter Seminar on Saturday, February 25 (snow date: March 4), from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Over the past five years, more than 250 people have attended this popular seminar to learn about gardening and the environment and to network with other like-minded community members.
Beds & Breakfast begins with an organic breakfast prepared on-site by Chef Jamie Busch. This year’s theme is Sustainable Food, with three program tracks: Cooking and Nutrition, Food-based Entrepreneurship, and Advanced Home Gardening.
Workshop topics include Extending the Growing Season, GMO’s and the Gut Connection, Knife Skills, Start-Up Food Business Basics, Chicken Coops & Care, Homemade Dried Fruit, Cooking with Essential Oils and more. Attendees can select any workshop, however, and do not need to follow a specific track.
Space is limited to the first 50 people who register on a first come, first served basis. Registration and payment are by Thursday, February 9th for an Early Bird discounted price of $40; after February 9th the fee is $45 per person. The registration fee includes breakfast, workshops, giveaways, networking, resource tables offering with information from seed companies and local organizations, and door prizes. No walk-ins can be accommodated on the day of the event, and participants must be aged 16 and older (no child care is available).
