Pound Ridge Organics, a consumer-direct produce marketing association (PMA) that grows and sells sustainable, ethically produced food and products, will begin March by offering regenerative gardening classes and end it by hosting cultural culinary events, a photography workshop and a chicken farm tour.
Jeff Curdulack, of Organic Ways And Means, will teach the gardening classes (focused on veggies, fruit and herbs) March 1, from 1 to 2 p.m., and March 5, from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
On March 28, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Pound Ridge Organics will host a catered dinner, Slow Food Goes to Bhutan, and then on March 29, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., it will host a Greek cooking class and lunch with Nick Manolakakis, of Alev Oil.
Photographer Tony Dunne will teach Smart Phone Photography for Entrepreneurs, Chefs and Small Businesses, on March 30 from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m., with lunch from noon to 1 p.m.
The month’s activities will wrap up on March 31, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., as Donna Simons, of Pound Ridge Organics, leads a chicken farm tour in partnership with Slow Food International and Airbnb Social Impact Experiences.
“The chicken farm tour could be renamed ‘Humane Animal Care,’ as we focus on the breeds and how to preserve them—their care and feeding. My birds are not meat birds,” she says.
