Learn how to prepare these vegan dishes:

Enchiladas w/ Cheese Sauce - we'll make the mushroom/lentil/quinoa filling as well as the cheese sauce

Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake - we'll make the crust, the filling, and the raspberry topping

And if we have time, we'll also make our Chipotle Black Bean enchilada filling



Learn about delicious local wild foods, how to prep and cook with them and how they can provide an amazing source of sustainable food, during a two-day hands-on campout event on an organic, family farm in beautiful North Texas. Dinners, campsites provided!

In this workshop for all ages, we will learn about the Native American tradition of the Three Sisters - corn, beans, and squash - and why they work so well together in the garden. We will discuss the importance of cooperation, compatibility, and getting along with each other (in the garden and in life). Participants will plant pots of corn, beans and squash to bring home, along with some ideas for how to incorporate these into your summer garden. While this planting is more suitable to a large garden space, we will also discuss container and small space options.

Bob Richie is an expert on the natural world around us - even here in our neighborhood! Join us for this foraging nature walk at Twelve Hills Nature Preserve (817 Mary Cliff Rd, Dallas, TX 75208). We will meet at AJ Vagabonds, then caravan over to the nature preserve for a foraging expedition.

This class will start with a quick botany lesson on how to positively identify the plants we're seeking, then we'll head over to Twelve Hills to look for fresh and tasty plants growing naturally in our area. Bob will also discuss useful and medicinal plants found in the area.

Chefs Misti Noris, Peja Kristic and Joel Orsini will be delivering a NOLA style experience on the patio. Roasted pig from Chubby Dog Farms and crawdads are on the menu. There will be beer, wine and music as we gather to celebrate community and lovely locally sourced food. Profound Foods and POP Gardens will bring the freshest ingredients to the table for the Chefs to prepare and for you to savor!
