BROOME CO., N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County (CCE-BC) is pleased to host free programs for veterans. This initiative aims to provide essential resources and educational opportunities to veterans, empowering them to build successful careers and lead fulfilling lives post-military service.
On June 10th, CCE-BC invites veterans residing in Broome County to join us at the Vestal Farmers Market from 9am-1pm to receive $15 in market coupons and then shop with many of the vendors for all their produce, protein, dairy, or other needs. Please bring proof of veteran status. The veteran is asked to be in attendance. Veterans can stop by the branded Broome County Veterans information booth to learn more. These coupons, and all veterans-focused programs, are supported by the Broome County Division of Veterans Services.
On June 21st at 5:30pm, Broome County veterans and their spouse or family member are invited to join chef Amy Wieber from Flaming Bag Catering, LLC and learn to make two different types of pasta. Participants will learn to make ravioli and linguine from scratch and then prepare it at home. This class will take place inside the Commercial Kitchen Broome County Regional Farmers Market. There is no cost to attend, but spaces are limited so pre-registration is required.
On June 22nd at 5:30pm, Broome County veterans and their spouse or family member are invited to join horticulturalist Linda Svoboda and learn how to grow the most popular types of culinary herbs. We will learn the best soil types, where and how to plant, and how to care for our culinary herbs. At the end participants will be able to get their hands dirty and plant several types of culinary herbs to bring home and grow. This workshop will take place at Cutler Botanic Gardens, located on the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County campus. Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required.
