This class pairs the Middle East's most exciting street foods with a variety of homely and simple snack recipes elicited from Tiazza's family cooking in Morocco and her travels. Together we'll create a full course dinner based on tasty Middle Eastern street foods.

The Art of Gardening in the Siskiyou Climate

In our Bio-Region, it can be a challenge to eat from the garden every month of the year.

With the right varieties planted at the right time, low tech season extension techniques and some helpful tips, you can start to master the rhythm of year round gardening too.
