Christmas Party


Seaside Garden Club Christmas Party

December 11, 7pm, (no social hour, come at 7)

Yankee Swap – Garden themed – limit $20

Everyone is asked to bring an appetizer or dessert.

Additionally, please bring a non-perishable food item for the food pantry.

Join us for two Baking Workshops featuring Sarah Wonson, former pastry chef at Lanesville’s Plum Cove Grind and Wenham’s Treats Cakes & Confections, who will share innovative new twists on the old classics, mingling seasonal root veggies with traditional apples and pumpkin!

Here’s a sneak peek at the tasty treats Sarah will be introducing at the first Baking Workshop on November 6:

🍎 Golden Beet and Apple Pie – a glorious combination that brings out the natural sweetness of beets and highlights the tartness of the apples.

🍴 Kabocha Squash Drop Biscuits – a simple savory biscuit that will dress up your holiday table or can accompany a hot bowl of soup this winter.

πŸŽƒ Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites – a small autumn-inspired treat that packs a ton of energy and nutrients on the go!

Join us as we explore the joys of storage vegetables and their many uses in baking! Learn how to highlight or hide hardy winter roots like carrots, beets, among more traditional items like apples or pumpkins. Participants will be led by community gardeners and Backyard Growers staff, alongside our fabulous guest chef Sarah Wonson. You’ll leave with recipes, tips, and tricks to incorporate these seasonal recipes into your holidays meals! Not an experienced cook? No problem! We’ll go over the basics, so all levels of cooking experience are welcome.

Please notify us in advance of any allergies in your party.

Tickets are $20 for families, $15 for an individual and FREE for gardeners in our program!
