Science Cafe’s are BACK! We are super excited to be hosting both Sci Cafe’s and starting signups for cooking classes in partnership with Maine Sea Grant. These will be hosted starting February 26th and ending in June, all at ZaoZe Market and Cafe in Brunswick. Please see below for our list of dates, and as we confirm the aquaculturists who will be presenting, we will update here. This is an amazing opportunity to learn more about local seafood, produce, and our coastal economy.
Please email email@example.com to signup for a cooking class. Only 10 spots per class, so signup quick! The first Sci Cafe will be Feb 26th at 4:30pm, and will include an interactive tour and Q and A with the staff of Canopy Farms. Our cooking class will be an instructive walkthrough on how we harvest fish, and we will be transporting them right downstairs after for the class with chef Cara!
