Food and gardening are at the forefront of Sussex County Community College's newest enrichment programs designed with the community in mind.

Chef Martin Kester and agriculturist Erin Collins, both members of the SCCC faculty, will lead a host of courses, open to the public.

Kester heads several courses that will make your meals ever more tasty, taking advantage of fresh New Jersey flavors while Collins takes attendees into the garden. 

All of the courses are completed in one day and at just $20 each. All of the food courses are via Zoom in the comfort of one's own kitchen.

Kicking off the May schedule is Spring Awakening with Kester. Attendees will learn the fundamentals of cooking with the treasures of the growing seasons’ first offerings, such as peas, mushrooms and asparagus. The focus of this course is to maximize their delicate, fresh flavors. The class will be held on Friday, May 7th from 6:30 -8 p.m.

On May 8, Collins brings you "Harvesting your Bounty and Saving Seed" from 1-3 p.m. In this course attendees will learn the basics of harvesting, handling and storage of produce and start to explore the wide world of saving seed from your home garden.
