Come learn about deliciously healthy snacks you can make at home! Forget the processed foods that surround our everyday lives and start consuming healthy snacks that not only fill you up, but support healthy digestion, produce healthy skin and nails, plus so much more. In class, participants will sample homemade granola, healthy homemade chocolate, and fruit leather. We will also be making a date and nut energy bar and naturally fermented salsa in class for guests to taste and take samples home. Participants will leave with a deliciously healthy snacks recipe guide and the confidence to start cooking up some of these amazing alternative snacks for themselves and their families.

Briana Marino is a Florida Gulf Coast University alumna, earning her bachelor’s degree in environmental studies in fall 2014. During her studies, Briana lived on a self-sustaining farm, Rancho Margot, through an honors study abroad program. Located in the Arenal region of Costa Rica, Briana found a deep sense of place. Upon return home, she began her own small homestead. As an educator, she hopes to foster a sense of place in the local food community and show her students what sustainable purchasing practices look like through hands-on, in-depth field trips. Currently, Briana is working on developing community workshops to educate the public on a variety of farming practices, cooking, and personal wellness.
