Family-focused, interactive demos about cheesemaking, beekeeping, and garden art projects will be featured at the event from North Bay Children’s Center, as well as local author Frances Rivetti with a book signing. Local historian Kathleen Hill will have her culinary antiques collection on display.

Returning to the event with samples and product tastings are:

The Summer Party Picnic will also showcase a “Picnic Plate” of assorted cheeses from the California Artisan Cheese Guild, proceeds from which will support the nonprofit and its educational programs.
