Local food @ the library! Wednesday, May 28th in Brentwood

Get acquainted with the farm-fresh food scene on the Seacoast! Local vegetable growers Kate Donald and Audrey Gerkin will lead this workshop on buying locally grown foods, eating with the seasons and supporting local farms. Find out about local farmstands, farmersÂ’ markets and CSAs that offer fresh vegetables, fruit, dairy, eggs, meat, honey and other farm products. Join a discussion about eating seasonally, living locally, growing your own food, and preserving the harvest for winter months. Learn about some exciting local initiatives including Seacoast Eat Local, Slow Food Seacoast and NH Eat Local Week.
By eating a little bit closer to home, you can reduce your carbon footprint, support local farms, and enjoy all the benefits of local, seasonal, fresh, nutritious food.
Kate Donald is the farmer at Willow Pond Community Farm, a certified organic vegetable farm in Brentwood that provides CSA shares to 70 local families.
Audrey Gerkin is a local food advocate trying to balance sustainability and feeding a hungry family of five. She is also an assistant farmer at Willow Pond Community Farm.

    Hi, Sara!

    NH Eat Local Week will be August 3-9, and so far we are short on details but the idea is to get a lot of people from all over NH eating local foods. INCLUDING, and maybe especially, some significant and public people, like civic leaders at all levels of government, journalists, bloggers ;), etc. We are definitely looking for people from all over the state to become official and unofficial sponsors of this, promoting it, owning it for their communities, etc. We can act simply as a broker house of publicity and information, but we hope it grows far beyond us.

    We’ll be joining in the ‘national’ Eat Local Challenge in October, so those looking for a fun month can start planning ahead.
