Program Description

Seasonal gardening experiences will be paired with culinary instruction in this unique hands-on workshop. The workshop will begin at Rogers Farm where participants will learn how to grow and harvest early-season produce. In addition to broadening your horticultural horizons beyond standard spinach, lettuce, and radish varieties, we’ll discuss and demonstrate planting timelines, spacing, pest management, when to harvest, and strategies for harvesting. Then, participants will take a short drive to the UMaine campus to develop culinary skills with chef Dumas, who previously served as a chef in the White House for four years. Dumas will introduce the science of making emulsions and guide participants in making delicious creations using scapes and chives. Rhubarb, our beloved perennial Maine favorite, will be on the dessert menu.

This workshop will start at Rogers Farm, 914 Bennoch Road in Old Town. For more information see Rogers Farm.
