Sonoma Garden Park is honored to host three visitors from Central America as well as the director of The Garden’s Edge in our Seed Saving Workshop & Amaranth Dinner Festival. The band Batacha Quartet will provide music, and the Qachuu Aloom Farmers Association from Guatemala will lead the workshop.
With amaranth as a staple crop, you can expect to hear lots about the health benefits of this unusual grain and see the garden plot of amaranth which End World Hunger 2030 maintains. Topics will include the whys and hows of saving seeds, how to store seeds, and amaranth as a nutritional food.
Participants of the workshop have the option of staying for the dinner festival to meet our guests and presenters, and to enjoy music from the Batacha Quartet until 7 p.m. The food is provided by End World Hunger 2030 and prepared by Teen Services Sonoma’s Lovin’ Oven and friends.
