Come enjoy dinner at nourish restaurant and hear local author, environmental writer, and LexFarm co-founder Meg Muckenhoupt speak about “Eating What You Grow 1620-2012.”
Every home gardener grows tomatoes—but they didn’t exist in Massachusetts in 1620. What did people plant to eat? This overview of how farmers’ choice of crops has reflected the Bay State’s changing climate, transportation, economics, and food fashions reveals just how much has changed since the Pilgrims started stewing succotash. The talk will include a handout with lists of heirloom vegetables and recipes worth reviving.
Dinner is $40* with a portion of the proceeds supporting LexFarm’s educational programs. Sign up here.
* entrée includes choice of local beef, local fish or vegetarian option; does not include gratuity and certain beverages.
