Another snack tray, another dessert. With the holidays upon us, learn how to use that beautiful harvest of fruit to bring art to your table, your home, and your party. Carolyn Black will be speaking about using fruit and vegetables as art and will be demonstrating how to create an edible Christmas tree. The meeting starts at 7 pm at the Boys and Girls Club of Snohomish, 402 2nd St, Snohomish, WA 98290. A brief business meeting will precede the presentation.
Carolyn Black was born and raised in Seattle and attended Whitworth College in Spokane. After marrying, she spent many years raising a huge garden, dehydrating, cooking and canning while raising a family. During this time period she created her Edible Christmas Tree which she showed at the Evergreen State Fair, taking several first place ribbons. She has been making edible Christmas trees for over 30 years. Carolyn worked for Colleen Fullmer for about 5 years, teaching (very hands-on) gardening and nutrition to low income and food stamp recipients. The programs focus was tribal peoples, but she also worked with all other groups. She saw roughly 700 students from Stanwood, Everett, Marysville, Snohomish and Monroe each month.
See the Herald article for more information on her Christmas Tree, which she will be demonstrating to us during the meeting:
