Local Foods Fest this Saturday!

1oclivingmachine:

Gear up for the local foods fest at the AJLC this Saturday between 1:00-4:00. During this fest, AJLC staff will be working in the garden getting the last summer crops harvested, preserved and ready for over-wintering.

From left to right: Dried chives, oregano and mint, two jars of dill, saved marigold seeds, and sun-dried tomatoes.
