Join Nando Jaramillo of Moon and Stars Arepas for a hands-on lesson in preparing traditional arepas and empanadas! Nando is on a mission to grow organic, heirloom corn, provide high-quality nutritious foods, cultivate community, and demonstrate a new way forward connecting regenerative farming practices and cultural traditions. Join him to explore the cultural heritage of these foods, grind organic heirloom corn together by hand, then make versions that are both traditional and seasonal.
