Workshops @ CVF
We’re getting back to our roots as a teaching and learning farm with this new workshop series, in partnership with our friends at Grow Pittsburgh.
Each monthly workshop will be held at Churchview Farm in collaboration with CVF’s farmer Tara, and Grow Pittsburgh’s farmer Hanna Mosca and educator Denele Hughson.
Join farmers Tara and Hanna, along with Chef Brian, and experience the fabulous range of taste, heat, sweetness, and beauty of the extensive variety (over 90!) of heirloom peppers that we grow at CVF. We will discuss why I make some of those choices, and talk about some of my personal favorites and why I love them. I’ll also review some 2019 trial varieties and why I will (or will not) grow them in the future. Hanna will review some of her favorite varieties at GP, and we will touch on cultivation techniques, seed starting, and pest & disease issues.
Chef Brian will discuss some of his favorites (including our spice peppers) along with his preferred uses and preserving methods, and how these CVF peppers are utilized at Superior Motors.
Workshop includes a tour of Churchview Farm and parking.
