Our Community Planting Project is back! Clients are planting herbs from seed, caring for them, and delivering them to the River Food Pantry on the Northside of Madison. We have been planting basil and other herbs to donate for people to take home and enjoy. So far we have found new homes for 46 of our basil plants and have donated approximately 1 lb of trimmed basil.
We have also planted some basil of our own to enjoy during our cooking class. We have harvested basil for two of our recipes: Tomato Basil Salad and Basil Garlic Yogurt Sauce with Cucumbers and Crackers.
