Glensheen Mansion presents: Classroom in the Garden
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
(218) 725-8910 • Visit Website
Classroom in the Garden is a brand-new Wednesday night series taking place during the month of September. Glensheen is known for the incredibly, impressive mansion. However, the 12-acre estate is equally cool for reasons like our Vegetable Garden. Which cranks out over 2,000 pounds of produce every year. It gets better, all of the produce is donated to a local food shelf, Second Harvest Food Bank. Classroom in the Garden takes advantage of this tasty gift right in our back yard. A UMD Chef will showcase different recipes each week using vegetables from the Glensheen's Vegetable Garden. They will literally pull carrots from the ground and pluck corn from its stalk to cook samples right in front of you. The event is free and open to the public. Small samples will be served. Held at 3300 London Road.
