The Earth Knows My Name: Food, Culture and Sustainability in the Gardens of Ethnic Americans
November 4, 2006
Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station,
Jones Auditorium -
New Haven, Connecticut
Schedule of Events
10:00-1:00 Organic farmers market, displays and music.
This is great opportunity to stock up on the delicious bounty from NOFA farmers who usually bring potatoes, onions, garlic, squash, greens, apples, cider, eggs, maple syrup, wool, yarn and much more to sell.
Guitarist Glenn Roth will play. The New Haven Advocate writes that Roth is “one of those guitarists that you start watching and two seconds into it your jaw is on the floor. Expect a jazzy, fingerstyle guitar sound.”
12:00-1:30 Pot luck lunch.
One of the most delicious meals you’ll have. Bring something you like to make and share and the recipe or a description. It doesn’t have to be all organic or vegetarian. Something from your farm or garden is always appreciated. Please bring your own plate, cup and utensils in order to minimize paper and plastic waste. We will provide beverages.
1:30 –2 Annual meeting.
We will report on the year’s activities, elect officers and board members and get input from members.
2:00 –3 The Earth Knows My Name: Food Culture and Sustainability in the Gardens of Ethnic Americans.
Author Patricia Klindienst will share what she learned in writing this book. She is an engaging and inspiring speaker.
