Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

The first-ever HOMEGROWN Fair was a huge success! A hearty thank you to all who shared photos, videos, recipes, stories and skills over the past month. What a year you’ve all had – and how wonderful it is to share in your accomplishments and learn something new from each submission. The Fair was a great way to build our community and get inspired by other HOMEGROWNers' efforts in planting, cooking, and building.


We announced weekly Fair winners in November, but we are excited to announce first-place overall winners in each category.  It was tough to choose just one in each!


And the winner are:


Backyard Animals 

Rachel and her handsome Blue Slate Turkeys



Nicole for her bountiful hops harvest



DixieBelle for her photos “Our Garden at the Moment (Australian Spring)"



Carol for her handy skillshare on cleaning chicken feet for stock


Canning/Food Preservation

Tamika for her peach and pear ginger chutneys and her cranberry jam with spice



Jay for his very own sweet potato enchiladas recipe



Congratulations to all on a beautiful year of living HOMEGROWN. Keep posting new skills and updates through the winter in preparation for next year’s HOMEGROWN Fair. It was a joy to see your progress and to learn something new from each of you!
