Event details

The Alliance for the Arts GreenMarket is continuing its decade old tradition of free, urban farming workshops on select Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.

Join Jay and Carolanne of Hearth Artisan Bakery for some bread-ucation and learn how to make two different styles of bread – one that requires kneading and one that doesn’t. Learn about the science behind the scens and how time, temperature and humidity affect bread making. Topics will include gluten-free alternatives, what starter is, what gluten does, where it comes from and different ways to develop it. The demonstration will include dough preparation, kneading, shaping and final products.

Have fun, learn new things, then sample and shop the Hearth Artisan Bakery booth and the GreenMarket to put your newfound knowledge to work!

Grab a chair, blanket and a notepad for this hourlong presentation followed by a Q&A. All workshops are free, but small donations are accepted to help the Alliance for the Arts continue programs and activities that benefit the community.

The GreenMarket has been a hub for local backyard veggie gardeners and organic farmers for over 10 years. It acts as a space where knowledge is shared freely, with the goal of making Fort Myers and southwest Florida more sustainable: more growers big and small, better food, introduction of biodiversity and resilience in our gardens and fields.

The workshop will be conducted rain or shine. The Alliance campus offers 10 acres of open space, so appropriate social distancing will be maintained.
