Eating Organic on a Budget with Sanne Kure-Jensen
Tuesday August 22, 2017
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
Learn what the USDA Certified Organic label means about farmers’ growing practices. Hear the difference between Certified Organic and Chemical Free, Certified Natural, Integrated Pest Management (IPM), and sustainable growing practices. Sanne will discuss the “Dirty Dozen” and the “Clean Fifteen.” Discover economical ways to eat organically by shopping seasonally, stocking up from store’s bulk bins taking advantage of sales and the advantages of growing your own food in containers, a community plot or your own garden. Sanne will also discuss preserving the season’s bounty through canning, freezing and dehydrating for the long winter months.
