The Grange Country Living Series had a big weekend with three workshops, two on Saturday and one on Sunday.

Susan Chidester led a small group in a home kitchen on making bread and pizza dough and mozzarella while they were waiting for the dough to rise.

Saturday afternoon Jennifer Bernard showed off her backyard chicken operation and answered questions about how to get started and keep it going, fight off the predators and make it an enjoyable experience.

Making cheese in the Grange Hall kitchen

Sunday in the Grange kitchen Mary Stack had a lot of interest in making three different kinds of cheeses.

We are lucky we have so many talented people willing to share their knowledge. If you have a special interest you would like to share with the community or have a subject area you need help with, let me know and we schedule a workshop of find someone to give one.

Coming up: a chain saw workshop (date to be determined), kim chi workshop (sometime in June), seed saving (June 9 and 23), blackberry wine making (to be determined) and lots of canning and other food preserving opportunities. Watch this blog, www.lummigrange.com, Nextdoor and Lummi Island Friends on Facebook for information about workshops.
