July Activities

July is a busy month! We have a new art exhibit opening just in time for the Powwow Weekend, featuring native artists Jeneese Hilton, Cameron Decker and Aspen Decker. The gallery will be open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 AM to 2 PM through the end of the month. Our popular instant pot cooking classes are continuing, and we may offer another series in the near future. The garden is starting to produce lettuce, spinach and radishes, and with the recent frequent rains, everything is sprouting and growing fast. Click on the July calendar to enlarge it and see what we have going on.

Instant Pot Classes

In a recent instant pot cooking class, the participants learned to make three-can chili. This easy, budget-friendly recipe is ready in less than ten minutes. These classes have been so popular we've offered three six-class series so far this year. The students also work on their knife skills and learn about budgeting and meal planning. Participants who attend all six classes take home a free instant pot so they can put their new skills to use.

Garden Planting Days

Our garden is getting planted and with sunshine and water it will be flourishing soon! We recently added a fun kids' section with water tables and kid-sized garden tools, thanks to a generous donation of materials and labor from Genentech. Genentech also donated and assembled pollinator boxes, so we'll be able to attract the pollinators that are essential for a garden's success. With the park benches and picnic tables we added last year, our garden is becoming a beautiful spot for Arlee residents to enjoy.
