Meet a Farmer Potluck



After a long hiatus, The Growing Home is hosting a potluck once again! Come out to our first potluck of 2013 to MEET A FARMER! We want you to get to know all of our local, organic producers and learn about their farming practices. This is going to be a really great, educational event for everyone who loves tasty, healthy food. Each farmer will be bringing fresh produce to share with us, and a dish made out of that produce!

    are any farmers from the westside scheduled to be there?

    March 12, 2013

    • Amy C.

      Hi Rishi, this sounds great. Is it possible I could come check out the IUE Fair Oaks Farm?

      March 13, 2013

    • Roberta K.

      Amy, Rishi has a meetup for the IUE. Search for Insitute of Urban Ecology and there are work days every Sat. You can help out and become a part of making it even more spectacular than it already is!

      March 13, 2013

  • Roberta K.

    Looks like these farmers are from Pomona, Whittier and Ontario.
    Rishi, are you looking for other farmers? I could ask the Farm Lot 59 and the Growing Experience farmers if you'd like more. They are both from Long Beach. They have their farms open on Sat but will be closed maybe in time....

    March 12, 2013

    • Rishi

      Hey Roberta. This is going to be a East LA county focused event. Maybe we can plan a similar event with Long Beach Farmers at a location near Long Beach sometime later?

      March 12, 2013

    • Roberta K.

      Sounds like a plan. We have alot of farm dinners but those are kind of pricey. I like calling it a Meet the Farmers" event.

      March 13, 2013

  • Rishi

    Hello Friends,

    If you plan on attending, please make sure to register online at http://thegrowinghome.net

    Thanks

    I assume I should go directly to register online. Will we meet up there, or be on our own?

    March 12, 2013

    • Rishi

      Hi Debby, Yes please bring a dish. Not sure what you mean about meeting up. The event is at The Growing Home.
