The Shop Local/Eat Local Workshop will be held from 10:00am to noon at their office located at 4633 US RT 68, Yellow Springs.

It will be presented by two enthusiastic local gardeners, food shoppers, and cooks Magaw and Carlson,
who will share their techniques for shopping, foraging, storing, and cooking local
foods. They will demonstrate how to make broth bag soup base and a variety of pestos and other
creative meal makers, using what is in your refrigerator and cupboards.  Also there will be tips on how to
stock your pantry for meals in a pinch.

Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990.
