The WSCU Organics Guild will once again be hosting their Annual Chili Cook-Off at our final indoor market!
Join us at the Fred Field Heritage Center on Saturday, October 29th to wrap up our 2016 season and enjoy some delicious chili! Community members, students and vendors can all participate by submitting a chili in the competition, or by tasting the submissions to help vote in a winner. The Organics Guild charges a small “tasting fee” and uses the money earned on garden and green house projects.
Check back soon for more details!
