For our April potluck, we are delighted to welcome Terry and Robin Kevlin, who will be sharing with us about their own journey into urban homesteading here in Nashville, raising chickens (Terry is a board member for UCAN), growing organic food crops, cooking and preserving them (canning, dehydrating, etc.), and other ways in which they obtain a yield by working with nature's abundance in their own home and backyard.
• Bring food to share: Vegetarian, vegan, carne all ok. Any dish (main, side, dessert, etc) ok. Please make it as local/sustainable as is practical. Please also list ingredients on an index card (for folks with food allergies, etc).
• If possible, bring your own plate, bowl, utensils, etc. -- This really helps with the clean-up.
Site fee: $2 if you bring a dish, $5* if you don't. Children free.
* In keeping with our community principles, we strongly encourage everyone to bring some food to share, if you are able.
Children: Always welcome, with loving supervision.
