In this two-part series, Virginia Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners and Master Food Volunteers will explore our evolving understanding of the benefits of gardening on physical and mental well-being and demonstrate how to prepare tasty and nutritious food with easy to grow ingredients.

In Part 2 of this series, participants will channel their favorite TV cooking shows and learn to prepare dishes from nutrition-packed vegetables and herbs. Master Food Volunteers will demonstrate technique while Aisha Salazar, the Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences, discusses the nutritional value of the ingredients used.
