Wednesday the 24th is National Food Day.
Personally I believe everyday should be thus! A focus on healthier (and tastier) eating, food justice issues, growing and cooking with families and children, foods from around the world and here at home; pretty important issues!
We will be in our temporary kitchen classroom (at Madrona Presbyterian Church) with our Garfield CC gardening STEP high school youth (Seattle Park’s teen job training group). They are working with us every Wednesday through early December to support our garden and so far have planted cover crops, flower seeds for spring and built 2 new cloche to protect our newly seeded winter and spring vegetables. A great group!
While we are playing with eggplant (grilled eggplant on grilled bread) and making Kale and Scarlet Runner Bean Soup (we just finished drying a bunch of these), Tom Douglas Restaurants will be raising funds for Green Plate Special! All day on Wednesday the 24th ALL of Tom’s restaurants will be featuring a whole grain salad (different at each place) and the proceeds for this are going to support us. This is BIG and thanks to all the great folks at TDR!
Do your part and treat yourself to one of their fantastic salads at one of the many great choices: FOOD DAY AT TD RESTAURANTS
