Santa Cruz Community Farmers’ Market hosts a new food education program
The Santa Cruz Community Farmers' Market is coordinating a new education program called the Foodshed Project! It's a monthly event running from June through October featuring local, seasonal foods and the growers and ranchers that produce them. Part of the funding for the Foodshed Project comes from the USDA Farmers Market Prevention Program, under the same grant as EFA's EcoFarm Fellow program.
On July 4th from 3 to 5pm, come out to the Downtown Santa Cruz Farmers' Market for the "Livestock Lowdown," the second event from the Foodshed Project. Join us to praise some of the animals that many of us love to eat. In honor of Independence Day, chef Brad Briske and Chris LaVeque of El Salchichero will be grilling sustainably-raised meat. Fogline Farm, a local pastured-raised livestock producer, will be heading up a do-it-yourself mini-class at the Hay Bale Forum (a stage area with speakers and activities). Get the rundown on backyard chickens and general small, responsible live-stock care. Taste ecologically-raised, carefully butchered, and expertly prepared burgers. Enjoy music, face painting, and a scavenger hunt led by Food, What?! youth. Take your turn on the bicycle blender. Join us at this fun, free event open to everyone. For more information about the Foodshed Project, visit www.santacruzfarmersmarket.org or contact Nicki Zahm at email@example.com or 831-454-0566.
