Awesome Librarian Lauren Zabelsky located at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Woods Run enlisted the expertise of farmer Tara Rockacy for a weekly, month long Farm Education series of workshops. Two of the Tuesdays Heather and Tara worked together to introduce Digital Salad programming. The first was straight up fresh farm harvest and collage session. Tara also brought a massive squash that looked like a large snake – it was amazing. We didn’t cut it, we were just in awe of it.
