How the sausage is made!  

@ The HIVE 2.0, Noon – 2:00 pm

Brought to you by Michael Clark, sausage maker extraordinaire!  The title says it all.  This is a basic sausage making workshop using a common kitchen aid stand mixer and attachments.  Come make sausage in this hands on workshop.  Get in touch with your inner gourmand!

Tactile Anacostia 

@ Anacostia Arts Center, Noon – 5:00 pm

Tactile Anacostia is a gastro-art project that invites Anacostia and neighboring Ward 8 residents to come preserve their food stories with conceptual food artist Carmen C. Wong.
All Anacostia and neighboring Ward 8 residents are welcome to drop by during workshop hours to help craft locally-obtained produce into jams, pickles, sauces and ephemeral art.  Come ready to tell and audio-record your favorite food stories and check in with your fellow Anacostia neighbors.  Participants get to take home jars of these Anacostia-grown stories which they have collectively preserved.
Don’t live in Ward 8 but want to take part?  We need volunteers at the workshops and you are warmly welcome to lend a hand.
On the menu: Mulberry jam!
