Saffron Celebration

Pungent and golden, saffron was cultivated thousands of years ago in ancient Persia. Today it grows in France, Spain, parts of India, and—wait for it—Kelseyville, at the Peace and Plenty Farm. Curious? Check out the Winter Celebration on the Farm, where saffron gifts and refreshments will be available. And visitors can also stroll through saffron fields and feed the chickens (be on the lookout for the one donning a Santa hat). The event will be held on November 28, 11 a.m.–3 p.m., and is free.
