Dana has great plans for when she retires - and a lot of them include getting back to basics in growing food and producing her own preserves, pasta, bread and olives!
XMAS PRESERVES (Dec 2017)
This is a good class to learn about preserving. Straight forward, easy directions delivered in Maria's warm and welcoming style. Classes are small so there is lots of interaction and laughter with Maria and other participants and you end up with a load of preserves cooked, bottled and very prettily packaged in Christmas colours. A must do if you are looking for original home-made gift ideas. Another winner from Maria of My Green Garden.
ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS TO VEGETABLE GROWING MASTERCLASS SERIES (Sept 2017)
For someone with the desire and a brown thumb rather than a green thumb this was a great way to learn. Hands on with someone who has first hand experience in gardening and growing healthy vegies from scratch. Maria covers everything you need to know and does it in a friendly, down to earth manner.
SOURDOUGH BREAD MAKING (August 2017)
An excellent class in making sourdough bread. Well organised, one on one and lots of fun, plus the satisfaction of taking home a tasty loaf shaped by my own hand! Next day baked two more loaves just as good as the class. I am a very happy bread lover!!
FILLED PASTA WORKSHOP AND LUNCH (July 2016)
I did the ravioli and cannelloni class first which I enjoyed so was looking forward to this one. Maria makes it fun and not hard work. The end results were terrific - and tasty. Can highly recommend both classes if you have an interest in learning how to make great pasta at home.
PRESERVING THE SUMMER BOUNTY (Feb 2016)
The class was as described, well structured and lots of fun to participate in. Maria is very knowledgeable, well organised and an excellent teacher. Before going I was apprehensive about preserving, but am now confident as I understand the straight forward basics. We got to take home samples of our combined efforts - yummy! If you like to utilise all the fruit and vegies available in your home garden or shops, I can highly recommend this class. Thank you Maria.
