Besaw's is super excited to host Robyn Jasko, author of Homesweet Homegrown: How to Grow, Make and Store Food, No Matter Where You Live for cocktails and book signing, June 19th at 6:00pm. We'll have extra-special cocktails with ingredients from our garden, and nibbles on the patio. Best of all, we all get to meet Robyn and talk about homegrown food, from planting to canning (subjects we LOVE!).

Here's what's up with Robyn's book:

Written by Grow founder Robyn Jasko, and illustrated by Jennifer Biggs, Homesweet Homegrown is a diy food book that empowers people everywhere to grow their own organic, non-gmo food, whether they live in a high-rise city apartment or an acre in the suburbs.

With eight comprehensive sections (Know, Start, Grow, Plant, Plan, Make, Eat, and Store), this 128-page guide takes you through all the steps of gardening, canning, storing, pickling, and freezing your own homegrown food.
