Library hosts cooking, gardening events

The Estacada Public Library has announced that the "Saucy Wine" cooking demonstration, initially scheduled for Friday, June 16, will be postponed. The details of the rescheduled program will be announced at a later date.

The demonstration, led by cooking instructor and chef Corey Pressman of Fat Salt Love, will highlight ways to prepare three different sauces that will make meat, fish and vegetable dishes pop. Participants will taste the sauces with crackers or bread and drink wine while learning.

Next week, the library will host a gardening program called "From My Hive 2 Your Flower." Led by Master Gardener Kris LaMar, the program will discuss ways to attract pollinators such as honey bees, hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden. The event will take place from 6:30-8 p.m. Friday, June 23, in the library's Flora Room.

Both library programs are free and do not require registration. Doors will open at 6:10 p.m.
