Calling for Connection...

Posted 7/15/2017 8:44pm by Sally Voris .

  

 

This land is calling for connection, one with another and with the land that feeds and sustains us. She is like a mother calling her children home for a feast of her bounty....

In this spirit, we invite you to the farm in the height of summer to celebrate the garden's bounty at Lammas, the feast of the first fruits (traditionally August 2). It is the time when the food in the garden is the tastiest, the juiciest, the sweetest, a time when the first hint of autumn can be felt in the air...

 

On Saturday, July 29th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. we will focus on how to make salsa. We will start with a garden walk Participants will pick and taste various kinds of tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, onions and herbs. Then Kasey Johnson, an avid fermenter, will demonstrate how to make several different kinds of salsa. Last year, she shared her own fermented salsa: it was the best I have ever tasted!

Kasey loves to ferment! She ferments kombucha every week flavored with ingredients that are in season. She just recently harvested wild blueberries so she flavored her last batch with blueberry and thyme! She has also fermented sauerkraut, radishes, chutney and mulberry mead!

The farm will then host a potluck and fire circle for farm circle members after the program. The event is free to farm circle members (becoming a member is easy); cost to others? $20.00. Register here.

 

On Saturday, August 5, DJ and dance instructor Michael Campbell will entice both beginning and experienced dancers to move to salsa music behind the barn at the farm. Chips, salsa and light drinks will be available for everyone. The farm will host a potluck for farm circle members,and we invite circle members to bring their own salsa creations. (Fresh ingredients will be available during the week before the dance!) The potluck will also feature food fresh from the garden.

Cost for the dance? $15/individual; $7/child; $35/family; including a trial farm membership? $25/individual; $7/child and $50/family.Register here.

Happy Summer and hope to see you soon!

Sally
