Garden Planning Workshop 2019

On March 25, 2019, The Hub hosted a garden planning workshop where Erika, our garden coordinator, taught participants how to properly plan their gardens. She highlighted the different techniques, different types of soil, and how to prioritize your space. Participants were able to plan their gardens based on an in workshop worksheet and learn how to keep their gardens thriving whether it be through preventing pests or how to plant based on what kind of sun access they get.

Vegetables and Cooking Workshop 2019

On March 18, 2019, The Hub had the nutrition and garden teams collaborate to host a workshop on different ways to use vegetables in cooking. We displayed vegan and vegetarian options that are not just salads and really fun ways to incorporate vegetables into your meals. Participants were able to pick the recipe they focused on and were able to do each recipe on their own in groups which allowed for interactive learning to yield the best results for recreating in their own home kitchens!

Seed Starting Workshop

On Monday, March 4, 2019, we had one of the beginning steps to our garden season which was seed starting. We taught patrons what to look for with tools for seed starting and what we use for planting. Erika demonstrated what desirable soil looks like, planting techniques, and different ways to use household items to garden. The group was able to interact with soil and make their own "newspaper pots." If you are interested in getting more involved with our workshops, call Alissa at (812) 339-5887

February Workshops

This month, we had a couple workshops for patrons, volunteers, and community members to join us for. The workshops were Things on Toast and Cooking and Growing Microgreens. In Things on Toast, we explored different options and toppings to spice up your toast and new ingredients to learn how to use. The participants were able to each make their own dish and then we had a delicious taste test at the end.

For the Cooking and Growing Microgreens Workshop, Alissa and Erika teamed up to teach participants how to grow their own microgreens and new ways to use them in cooking. Not only were participants able to harvest their own microgreens, but they also were able to use them in recipes and taste test them at the end of the workshop.
