Greener Village Cooking Classes

We are looking for feedback on how many would be interested in partaking in a monthly cooking instruction.

This event would be held at Greener Village 686 Riverside Drive. We would need 10 - 12 people each time, with an approximate fee of $25.00 per person and possible partly paid through MPN funds. 

You could learn to bake bread, bake beans, casseroles, desserts, jams, etc. whatever you make you get to take a portion home and the rest stays to benefit Greener Village and their clients.

A learning experience for you as well as giving back to the community.

Hoping to get enough interest to start up in July and learn to make jam. 

Please let a committee member know if this is an interest to you as soon as possible so that we can get this event underway.
