SALSA NIGHT

June 11th, 6-8 p.m.


“Our speaker will be discussing tips for growing great peppers, tomatoes and herbs for both spring and fall gardens. We will have a salsa tasting and a tomato contest (bring your best home-grown tomatoes to enter for prizes). Mexican food small bites will be served along with some Salsa dancing and great music to get you moving! Local business Bob’s Taco Station will be supplying their amazing salsa, and we’re bringing in a margarita machine to cool your taste buds!” 

 

THE ROMANCE OF GRAPES

June 25th, 6-8 p.m.


“The great folks at Agrilife Extension are bringing in Gulf Coast Viticulture Specialist, Fran Pontasch, to discuss the differences between wine grapes, table grapes, and muscadine grapes. This seminar will be in the format of three 30-minute sessions. Each session will discuss just how to grow and use each specific kind of grape, and will be paired with a complimentary wine tasting for you to enjoy while learning. The new Messina Hof Winery (coming soon!) in Harvest Green will be supplying the wine for the evening, and we can’t wait to sample them all!”
