Hi Urban Homesteaders,
I have only just begun to learn about the whole idea of
emphasizing local foods in my diet, from local farms and through food coops and farmers markets. I don't know much about the resources around Boston (beyond once-a-week farmer's markets in different areas that I found a list of). I was thinking it might be really fun for us all to take some field trips to some vibrant markets around Boston, but also maybe to find out whether there are actually farms that one can visit. I can try to do all of the research on discovering food coops and things like that by myself, but it would be more fun to discover these things with other people who are also interested in local food and maybe exchanging recipes and tips for cooking those local foods.
I would also love it if we could maybe arrange some cool workshops or classes to take together (hopefully defraying the cost and making it possible to do a workshop on our own schedule - rather than waiting for one to come up). I'd be interested in a sewing workshop (I want to make my own simple clothes and things), a baking class (I'm still no good at baking bread, especially whole grain breads - I've been trying to do it by hand and don't want to give in and get a bread machine), any kind of interesting cooking class... Maybe a cheese making class? I know they have cooking schools around and we could find out how much it would be (if others are interested too) to arrange a group class for one night or on a Sunday or something.
I would be up for a trip to Haymarket. I've never been there. Supposedly it's great.
Of course, since I'm new to Boston, maybe everyone here knows about these things and this is all old news... but I just thought I'd throw them out there.
