"A Growing Appetite for Local Food:” A Conversation at Graze Sustainable Table

"The Growing Appetite for Local Food:”   A Conversation at Graze Sustainable Table

The Kearsarge Valley Transition Initiative invites area residents for
an early evening conversation over drinks and hors d'oeuvres on Tuesday,
October 22, at Graze Sustainable Table, 207 Main Street in New London. Discussion
of “The Growing Appetite for Local Food: What’s It
All About?” will be led by Graze owner and farmer
Jeff Deuink who will talk about why he is so committed to sustainable farming
and to the “farm-to-table” philosophy
that guides his restaurant. 

This is the first in a series of monthly Tuesday evening conversations
planned by the Transition Initiative to encourage local folks to think about
how their communities can be more sustainable and resilient.

The evening will start at 5p.m. with informal conversation, a glass of wine or a cocktail, and specially-prepared Graze hors d’oeuvres (including prosciutto & smoked mozzarella stuffed cherry peppers, house-smoked salmon & cucumber roll, meatball sliders, and risotto fritters with spicy aioli sauce, among others).

At 6 p.m., Deuink willshare his passion for sustainable farming and his experiences in raising grass-fedbeef at the Three J Farms in Danbury which he has owned and operated since 1999.  There will be a short break at 6:30 for a return trip to the hors d’oeuvres table, or to pick up some bites of dessert, and then an opportunity for follow-up discussion
and questions until 7:15 p.m.

Since  Graze is usually closed on Tuesdays, and in order to prepare sufficient food, those interested in attending are asked to call Graze at[masked] to make a
reservation; please ask for Jason or Jaime when RSVPing.  The cost is $15 per person for food, with a cash bar.
 

The Kearsarge Area Transition Initiative encourages the nine towns
in the Kearsarge Valley to develop a greater reliance on local resources --
food, energy and human resources in particular -- to address the impacts of such
global issues as economic insecurity, environmental instabilities, and
dependence on non-renewable energy. For more information about the Transition
Initiative, visit its website at www.kearsargetransition.wordpress.com and check upcoming events

    Why no mention of overpopulation?
    Too many people.
    Not enough Earth.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
