We are so fortunate to have Mountain Feed and Farm Supply as a partner, bringing kick-butt, information packed, entertaining, skill building, fun and funny preservation classes to the sweet and charming Felton, Downtown and Scotts Valley farmers’ markets. These workshops are FREE and lead by the outstanding Mountain Feed staff. Jessica Tunis is an excellent teacher and has spent hundreds of hours with her hands deep in brine, squished berries, bubbling concoctions and other food projects. When it comes to making magic happen with the bounty of seasonal fruits and vegetables from the markets, these are the folks you want to have on your team. We’ll soon announce our plans for the 2020 season.
