Eat at Bills: Life in the Monterey MarketFebruary 26th, 6:30pm-8:30pm, Rye Public Library
A video documentary about the phenomenon that is the Monterey Market, a family owned produce market in Berkeley, CA. The enthusiasm and experience of the market’s owner fuels the enterprise and illuminates the Market’s wide world of small growers and diverse customers. A visual produce delight.
See the movie, sample local cheeses from NH farms and meet these local farmers:
Shawn Stimpson from Nelson Farm in Strafford. Shawn will talk about the innovative way that he heats his greenhouse to grow greens throughout the year. He and his wife Sarah Anderson operate the winter CSA with a drop off in Rye. They will have greens for sale.
Charlie Reid and Anne Dickerson from the Stonewall Farm, Osprey Cove Organics in Madbury. Charlie started the organic farmer’s program at UNH. He will talk briefly about how to start organic seedlings, including: preparation of soil, where to buy organic seeds and potting mixtures, and provide timelines for plantings in the spring and summer. He will have organic eggs for sale.
Mel Low is a Rye resident and master gardener (see July/2008 newsletter). He will update us on his garden, what he plans to grow for the coming season, and his hopes for a Rye town garden.
