Backyard Farming Series: Cook and Preserve with the Sun

August 11, 2018 9:00 AM
Gutierrez-Hubbell House - 6029 Isleta Blvd SW

Since 2010, Bernalillo County Open Space and its partners have offered a free series of workshops that provides the public with practical experience and knowledge for transforming their backyards into a thriving urban oasis of food, medicine, and wildlife habitat. The guest speakers for this series are all experts in their field who present firsthand knowledge on topics such as irrigation, livestock, insects, gardening, seed saving, and much more. The workshops are held at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House History and Cultural Center.

This workshop will focus on Cooking and Preserving with the Sun. Take advantage of New Mexico's sunshine and learn to use those rays to cook with a solar oven and to dehydrate your fruits and vegetables. Using the sun saves energy and is cleaner than wood fire cooking, and produces tender and tasty foods. Sun drying is an old-school method of preservation that is perfect for our sunny and dry climate

All workshops for the 2018 season are FREE and run from 9:00am to 12:00pm at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House, located at 6029 Isleta Blvd SW (3 miles south of Rio Bravo).
