Garden Fest Cookbooks


Cookbooks from our Garden Fest educational programs are available for purchase!
Each cookbook focuses on a different garden ingredient and features tried and true recipes from the St. Louis County Extension Master Gardeners. The 2012, 2013, and 2014 editions all include gardening tips for the featured ingredient.
Cookbooks are $5 each or $4 each if you purchase three or more. The following nine cookbooks are available:  Potato, Tomato, Apple, Herb, Pumpkins and Squash, Root Veggies, Potatoes vs. Beets, Autumn Vegetables, and Bountiful Beans. Cookbooks may be purchased at both the Duluth and Virginia Extension offices.

Horticulture Programs

Our horticulture offerings include spring workshops on gardening and landscape materials, commercial workshops on greenhouse production, small fruit production, vegetable production and nursery production, applied research on vegetable and small fruit varieties, and family education projects on home gardening as a means of improving diets.

Tune in to KDAL 610 radio on Tuesday mornings from 8:00 to 9:00 am to hear Bob Olen of Extension talk about what you need to know to make your garden successful. Listeners are encouraged to call in with their questions.
