Out of our 14 gardens this year, 33rd B Garden, has been our turkey raising garden.  We have been feeding 11 turkeys and since it's almost Thanksgiving, it's time to say goodbye to the birds and process them.

Any garden member who wants to learn how to "process a turkey" is invited to come and help us with this chore.

This process includes killing, gutting, plucking big and little feathers, cleansing the bird and helping with prep work i.e. boiling the water, etc. AND final clean up of the project.

We have expert instructors who will be teaching everyone what to do so no experience is necessary.

We only have 1 turkey still available to purchase, so you won't be taking home a turkey, just learning how to do this job.

Millcreek area, approx. 2300 east and 3300 south
