Pottery Center programs scheduled Oct. 12

The North Carolina Pottery Center will offer two programs on Saturday, Oct. 12.

  •From 11 to 11:30 a.m., Benjamin Grandon, an agent with the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service of Randolph County, will be giving a presentation titled “Local Foods and Community Supported Agriculture: How North Carolinians Can Help North Carolina.” Learn about what is grown in North Carolina, the Local Foods and Farm to Table initiatives in our state and how to find out and support local farmers wherever you live. Grandon has extensive knowledge of crops and gardens all over the state. Are you a locovore? Come find out.      

                                       

  •From 2 to 4 p.m., Vernice Willett, a volunteer with Cooperative Extension, will be cooking foods in pottery using a tabletop oven. Willett has cooked in pottery dishes for many years and is one of Cooperative Extension’s most knowledgeable volunteers. She will share with you her excitement about cooking, as well as an enthusiasm for all the wonderful pottery foodwares made in the state of North Carolina. She will also give out recipes and offer tastes of some of the dishes.

The Pottery Center will be open at no charge for these events, though donations are welcome.
