GreenMarket Workshop

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.

Farmer, professional chef, lifelong natural healer Tatiana Logvinova of Green Paradise Eco Farm will present Farm to Kitchen Cooking Practical Guidelines and a Meals Demo on Saturday, May 15.

Tatiana, expert organic grower and creative, raw food master will provide insight on easy and efficient ways to incorporate farm, fresh produce into your meals by offering tips and trips on good selections, right storage, divorce usage and propagation for future growth in a small space.

Have fun, learn new things, then sample and shop Tatiana’s 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.
