FEAST in the Sunny Point Garden! Plus pig and pickles

I'm so excited to help organize this event with such generous businesses! On August 7th, 2017 Riverbend Malt is donating a pig (fattened on their spent grain) and Sunny Point Cafe is preparing a FEAST to benefit FEAST!

Food and Beer will be served in the Sunny Point Garden along with a variety of pickles I'm making, because what goes better with pig than pickles? 

Refrigerator pickles are super easy and versatile - try using summer squash instead of cucumbers, or switch up the herbs and spices depending on what you've got and what you like.
