This Thursday, March 8, 5:30 PM – 8 PM http://getoutma.org/farmsharefair/ Argenziano School, Union Square, 290 Washington St., Somerville “We’re bringing farms to the city! Meet the folks who grow your food,
and sign up for a local farm share to get weekly fresh veggies!
Free entry, Exciting Kids Activities, Stone Hearth Pizza for sale, Inspired Feasts raffle for restaurant gift certificates”
Looks to be a fun event! It’s a great way to connect with growers, whet your appetite for the upcoming harvest season, and sign up for a summer share (and a winter share!) that’s a good fit for you. I’ll be at the Fair doing a table for Shared Harvest, and Picadilly Farmers Jenny and Bruce Wooster will be there taking signups for their summer box shares–so be sure to stop by and introduce yourself!
The fair is organized and hosted by our friends at theMOVE In case you don’t already know the fabulous way they’re connecting people with how/where their food is grown: “theMOVE (the Massachusetts Outdoor Volunteer Experience) brings the transformational experience of farming + gardening to diverse groups throughout the Boston area, by organizing single-day reflective outdoor volunteer experiences.”
