COLUMBUS, Ohio (OFBF) – Learn how to grow and preserve food from your own backyard or patio and how to go green at Ohio Farm Bureau’s daylong Grow and Know seminar at Franklin Park Conservatory.
“It’s been a long winter, so we want to help people get involved and take advantage of the growing season,” said Cara Lawson, promotion specialist for Ohio Farm Bureau and one of the coordinators of the event. “The sessions we selected for this event are designed to help people understand how to best use and preserve the flavors of the season.”
The session, "Growing Your Own Food and Going Green,” will be held June 5, 2010 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Franklin Park Conservatory, 1777 E. Broad St., Columbus, Ohio.
Attendees will be rotated among four unique breakout sessions: canning and food preservation, container gardening, cooking with herbs, and rain gardening.
