WeFarm is continuing our Workshop Series with TONS of offerings over the next few months to feed your curiosity (and your belly!).
The Winter season is a perfect time to learn new DIY healthy cooking, community building, and gardening skills! While the vegetable gardens are hibernating, we are offering indoor workshops that give you exciting recipes to try in your own kitchen and methods of greening your house and neighborhood, all that are hands-on and interactive. Come check them out! RSVP with ticket purchase or email to email@example.com .All workshops are $10-$20 donation (no one will be turned away). Please email us to discuss other payment/exchange options. All workshops will be taught at The Green Exchange, 2545 w. Diversey, Conference Room, but can be taught at other venues. Let us know if you would like us to visit!
