About the class

Next, we will move on to crafting Little Paradise Farm Roasted Vegetables & Fresh Ricotta Polenta, a comforting dish that highlights the natural sweetness of roasted vegetables paired with creamy ricotta polenta.

For dessert, we will indulge in Big Bottom Market Brown Sugar Biscuits with Watmaugh Strawberries, a delightful treat that combines tender biscuits with juicy strawberries for the perfect balance of sweet and savory.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
