Tour the Holcomb Farm in West Granby and meet the staff and students of The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (TIOSN) at their Open House on August 19. Starting at 6:30pm, the free event will include cooking a dish using wild edibles and a garden tour. Attendees will also learn about TIOSN’s one-year certification program while sipping tea made from the garden and tasting tidbits made by the students.
