Growing Apples, Cherries & Berries, Sept. 20/23
The Crossmount Arts Barn is offering a presentation on the different types of apples, cherries and berries that can be grown in Saskatchewan on Sept. 20 from 2-3 pm and on Sept. 23 from 7-8 pm.
Our Farm has been selling chemical-free vegetables on Broadway this summer (until Sept. 26). You can also purchase their vegetables online or through a CSA subscription. Their produce includes heirloom tomatoes, 5 kinds of potatoes, hot peppers, and various herbs.
The Farmers’ Table is a group of Saskatchewan farmers who are selling their ethical, environmentally sustainable produce online. They are now making deliveries in Saskatoon. Their products include honey, lentils, barley, and vegetables.
Breweries create a lot of waste, but they’re finding unusual ways to recycle it: from making granola bars, to growing mushrooms, to green energy. If you’re a home brewer, you can use the spent grains to make bread.
Flavourful Saskatoon is a weekly Monday feature. I also post regular profiles of culinary entrepreneurs, new restaurants and new food products.
