Bike the Barns thank you!

Thanks so much to everyone who donated to bike the barns this year. Together we raised $1,300! That’s $400 more than my goal and supports at least one more CSA share for a family or individual to access fresh, local food.

It was a great day for a ride and even better with all of the incredible support & generosity from all of you.

I can say thanks enough.

What? Fall Food Fest in December?

Yes, its true. Just like fall is seeming to last forever, Fall Food Fest is going to push the limits of the season and occur on Saturday, December 3rd. So instead of the weekend before Thanksgiving, plan for the week after.

 

What is the ingredient this year, you ask? ¬†In case you don’t remember the lobbying that went on last year… break out the GINGER, and add a little spice to your cakes, punch, soups, curries, and other creative dish that you can dream up.

 

I hope to see you on Saturday, December 3rd starting around 6pm at 410 North Lawn Avenue to kick of the season right. And feel free to share the invite with friends, family, and other people who love good food and even better company ūüôā

If there was any time to get together…

Hey folks,

I have been off the radar a bit since I moved in the spring, but after Tuesday night it’s time to get together and¬†figure out a way to move forward.¬† Please join me to get together, drink, and dance it out on Saturday night. Here’s the scoop:

  • Bring a song to play – playlist, CD… I even have a¬†cassette player (but no record player). Bridge over Troubled Waters, anyone??
  • Bring a bottle of something (and yes, it could be non-alcoholic)
  • A dish to share would be great
  • Plan for a safe way home, especially if you are drinking.

That’s it. Oh wait, when I said dancing it out, I’m serious.¬†See¬†the dancing it out montage from Grey’s Anatomy below:

Hope to see you at 410 North Lawn Ave on Saturday.

Bike the Barns, matching donations and my grandma.

Its only two weeks until my Bike the Barns ride to raise funds for fresh, local produce for all families. ¬†Many of you know that my family lost both my grandma and grandma this spring. What you may not have known is that my grandma grew up on a farm in the upper peninsula Michigan. We used to talk tomatoes and gardening every summer. In her memory, I am going to match ALL donations made to my Bike the Barns ride. Can we get to $350? We are so close! Can we raise even more than that? I’ll ride this year and think of all the people who will benefit from your donations – and I’ll be thinking of my grandma.
