full description & details:
Join 21 Acres on the first Saturday of every month and learn how to prepare your own local, seasonal food for your infant and toddler. Participants will help prepare their own pureed baby food or delicious toddler snack and also learn about general, infant, and toddler specific food safety. Emphasis will be on what a growing child needs and how to use local, seasonal, organic food to achieve that on a budget. Don't have a blender or food processor at home? No problem. You'll leave with 3 jars (6 oz.) worth of Washington-grown food for your baby to enjoy or snacks for your toddler that you helped make -- plus, the inspiration and knowledge to make more at home.
