Green your kitchen, learn how to reduce waste and get greater bang for your buck from your purchases!
It's mid-summer and the farmer's market is brimming with seasonal goodies. But the price tag can sting, especially when those heirloom tomatoes you splurged on start to bruise before you get a chance to use them. Between food waste, unnecessary packaging, and chemical cleaners, the kitchen often makes up a large chunk of our carbon footprint.
Anastasia Cole Plakias, Co-Founder and Vice President of Brooklyn Grange, has amassed an encyclopedia of tips and tricks on greening your kitchen over seven years of penning the farm's CSA newsletters, and now she's sharing them with you! From how to spend less at the market, to extending the life of your produce, to preservation techniques that don't require a canning pot, Anastasia is our green genie in the kitchen! You'll learn how to make compost cocktails and stocks, natural cleaning solutions that work, and wean yourself off that paper towel habit for good!
Beginning with a tasting tour of the farm, we'll head down to our workshop space for an eye-opening and lively presentation of easy changes you can make to your kitchen routine that will save you money, improve your health, and keep our planet safe.
This workshop will take place at our Brooklyn farm, located on the roof of Building 3 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Detailed directions can be found by following the link below.
