Dear Members,
This whole year, Laguna Farm is celebrating 30 years of community supported agriculture.  In celebration, we are hosting monthly events on the farm.  This month finds me demonstrating how to preserve the harvest with techniques that include low-sugar recipes using Pomona’s pectin and fruit butters with no added sugar.  With our abundant tomatoes, I will share recipes and techniques on how to can tomatoes for winter enjoyment.  Putting up food is a passion of mine that I look forward to sharing with you.  Please join me on August 11th in the farm barn at 2:00 and be ready to sample some delicious preserves.
In addition to the canning demo on the 11th, Laguna Farm is hosting a DIY activity at the Farm to Fermentation Festival at the Finley Center in Santa Rosa on August 22nd.  If you would like to learn about all things fermented, come and join us.  We will be making sauerkraut in the Willow Room.
Lastly, some upcoming events to note include the “Wild and Scenic Film Festival”, the Gravenstein Apple Fair and the Tour d’Organics!
Be Well,
Jennifer Branham
