It’s time to head back to school! The Westminster Schools hold a traditional potluck BBQ and open house for families just before school begins. This year we had a great turnout. Lots of kids and parents participated in the “tastes of the garden” table. We offered pickles, fresh produce and two dips all made from our garden veggies. There was a sign-up sheet for parents interested in After School pickling workshops being held this September.
