The Keystone Center, in partnership with the Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center, is hosting a regional food workshop on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, called “The Traditional Winter Garden: Fresh Food From December to March.”

The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Pennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center on Luckenbill Road in Kutztown, Pa.

During the workshop, heirlooms expert William Woys Weaver and co-instructor Josiah Taylor, former farmPennsylvania German Cultural Heritage Center manager for Colby College, will explore old-time as well as cutting edge techniques for using your traditional kitchen garden throughout the winter. The newly reconstructed kitchen garden of the historic Sharadin Farmhouse will be used as a classroom for demonstrating innovative ways to plant ahead using heirlooms that were developed for cold tolerance.

This workshop is limited to 30 people and the cost is $75 per person. Bring a bagged lunch; beverage and table setups will be provided. Part of the workshop proceeds will be given to the Heritage Center for the maintenance of the recently reconstructed kitchen garden.
