Join the Garden Kitchen for a special cooking class featuring the garbanzo bean! The Kala Chana Garbanzo bean was chosen as the 2018 One Seed Pima County seed to celebrate the resilient foods we can grow together. The class will give participants the opportunity to discover new ways to prepare the mysterious garbanzo bean. A recipe handout and samples will be available to participants.
One Seed Pima County is an opportunity for our community to share the experience of growing, harvesting, seed saving, and appreciating one, specially chosen, regionally-adapted food crop together. The Seed Library would like to invite gardeners throughout Pima County to join us in planting the Kala Chana Garbanzo Bean in your home or community garden during the months of September through mid-November.
At harvest time, we hope you will enjoy a healthy meal of your home-grown beans and will also consider returning a small handful of your dried beans to the library to become one with the harvests of other community members and so that we can have community-saved seed stock to plant from next fall.
Please note this FREE event will take place at the Garden Kitchen–space is limited, please register online.
