Backyard Basics program set at local olive orchard

ELMENDORF -- The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will bring its Backyard Basics program to Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard, located at 25195 Mathis Road in Elmendorf, Friday, May 3, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Presentations for the “Preserving and Serving the Harvest” program include hands-on demonstrations related to homemade and homegrown foods, said Lisa Linebarger, family and consumer sciences agent for Wilson County and an event coordinator.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by a presentation from 9 to 11:30 a.m. by Sandy Winokur, owner and operator of Sandy Oaks Orchards. Winokur’s presentation will include a site tour and olive oil tasting.

Lunch, which is included in the registration cost, will be from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and feature “Sandy Burgers” with olive tapenade, plus olive oil ice cream. Mary Dunford and Marilyn Magaro of the Herb Market Association will provide a lunchtime presentation on the use of herbs.

Three concurrent sessions will be offered from 12:45-1:45 p.m., ranging from soaps and beauty products made with olive oil to cheese-making with olive oil and picture-perfect pickles.

The cost for the program is $55 per person, and online registration is available through the Texas A&M AgriLife Conference Service website, http://agriliferegister.tamu.edu. Enter “backyard basics” into the keyword field to register on the site or call 979-845-2604 to register by phone.
