Ready to Join?

Let's meet @ 20:00 on Zoom for another Slow Food interactive Workshop. This time with Lilly - cook & gardner! The workshop is for the whole family and will, hopefully, be co-taught with Lilly's children. So if you have children, invite them to join in the fun!

Some plants practice social distancing for the greater good, too. In this workshop we will learn the importance of giving plants plenty of space to come into their full potential. We will be planting and caring for cool weather seeds at various stages of their life, and learn about the room they need to flourish.

Lilly is Garden Instructor for Slow Food Denver and also teaches children how to garden and creatively cook locally grown plants and other delights. She also co-hosts the podcast Sustainable Colorado which chronicles her family's experience of living in the earth's rhythms zero-waste on an urban farm.

Materials Needed:
- Garden space or a large pot with soil
