Learn this history – and the how – of baking in this All You Knead to Know workshop. Baked goods made from grain have been a global state of life for over several millennia. They has provided calories and protein to generations of people when other foods were not available. Amazingly, to a lot of people, how to bake a loaf of bread at home is still a mystery, let alone, knowing how the grain was produced that supplied the flour. Anyone from a chef to a farmer, as well as bakers in small and large bakeries, will find interest in this specialized workshop just for the baking industry. Baking is an art and a food science that allows many components to work together.

Water is critical to maintaining a successful landscape or vegetable garden but can be expensive and time-consuming. Harvested rainwater can serve as an irrigation source for landscape plants, lawns, and vegetable gardens and reduce the amount of municipal water used in the garden, which can save money on water bills.
This class will be led by Joshua Campbell of the Oklahoma County OSU Extension Office.
After the class you can also check out gardening tools!
The workshop is free, but registration is required.

In this workshop, learn why we should be serious about backyard conservation, how we are in the perfect situation to change things, and examples of how to be the conservationist and champions these species need.
Whether it’s a 2-acre property, 20 feet of backyard fence line, or a 10-gallon pot on an apartment balcony, these are the front lines of species conservation and can be their most important spaces. Oklahoma is an environmental wonderland, yet our wildlife is struggling to hold on to the world we’ve created. Our role in the environment now is more important than ever, and our location means that we are primed to set the tone for ensuring our most foundational species have a space.
