What is a good squash? What is some history about these plants? Exchange recipes while enjoying a tasting where ways for growing and storing, flavors, and preparation will be shared. Stay warm and enjoy some butternut soup, glazed acorn, a bite of pumpkin bread, and more. Enjoy a cup of coffee, tea, or cider as you create fall hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, and snacks. Explore and sample some side dishes and main vegetarian courses just in time for harvest season celebrations.  Active Participation
