Upcoming programs at Berkshire Botanical Garden
STOCKBRIDGE – Berkshire Botanical Garden presents the following upcoming programs. Sunday, Oct. 23, 3 to 5:30 p.m. , “Seasonal Cooking Surprise.” Join the chef/educator team Steve and Julie Browning for this fun and collaborative cooking lesson. At the start of the class, we will open up a basket full of secret seasonal ingredients. Using the mystery ingredients, we will discuss the dishes they could potentially be and how they could all come together. As a class, we will discuss and plan a dinner recipe out of the ingredients and then cook and eat the meal. Drawing on years of building menus from a chef’s perspective, we will reveal how to use farmers market ingredients in different ways. Cost is $55 members, $65 nonmembers; Wednesday, Oct. 26, 5 to 6:30 p.m., “Sparrows in the Garden.” Join Mass Audubon for a talk and walk. The focus? The sparrows that spend their fall in Berkshire County. Together, learn helpful tips for identification, the various species that breed and migrate through the Berkshires and how to enjoy their subtleties as they dart and dive into grasses and shrubs. Bring binoculars and sturdy walking shoes. Participants will be exploring the gardens in search of sparrows. Cost $12 members, $14 nonmembers; .For more information, or to register, visit www.berkshirebotanical.org; Botanical Garden is located at 5 West Stockbridge Road.
