You don't get that many chances to eat well, celebrate, and support three of the things that make life worth living all at once. So think about grabbing this one:
Next Friday, August 31, from 5-7 pm, NOFA-VT (that's the Vermont chapter of the Northeast Organic Farmer's Association) will be throwing a "Simple Summer Supper to celebrate the bounty of the season" at the Kimball Public Library in Randolph. And the Arts Bus (which brings arts education to kids in central Vermont) will be along for the ride as well.
The evening's broken into a half-hour of conversation and learning, then an hour and a half for meal prep and eating. And the menu? Grilled bruschetta and mozzarella, salads with assorted grilled meats, and berry shortcake. Here's what they're doing:
"The evening will start with a short presentation where you will share garden experiences and learn from local farmers. Following, everyone will join hands to prepare a simple, fresh, local summer feast to share together. Please sign up to bring local ingredients (even better if they are from your garden or farm!) All ingredients should be cooked, washed and prepped where mentioned. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0448aaa62aa0fb6-nofavt1 Bring a picnic blanket or chairs, and your own drinks to enjoy with the meal."
They sign off with Eating local food rocks! Community rocks! Libraries rock!
I'm not arguing with any of that. Are you?
