Tonight’s guest and topic:

When you hear the words “school lunch”, you may not think of scratch cooking with fresh local foods. But did you know that Minneapolis Public Schools has a nationally-recognized Farm to School program? Or that the district is committed to building kitchens in all schools? Join us at the Harvest Happy Hour to learn how MPS feeds our students fresh, nutritious meals with ingredients sourced right from our regional farms with Bertrand Weber, Director of Minneapolis Public Schools Culinary and Wellness Services. We’ll have samples of our seasonal menu items, garden tours and happy hour specials too!

Metro Growers Network: Making Farm to Fork Work

Twin Cities gardeners – please join us August 7th, 6:30-8:00pm for the next Twin Cities Metro Growers Network Get Together!  We will tour the cafe garden and discuss how sustainability and local foods are integrated into everything we do at Common Roots.  We’ll also hear from University of Minnesota extension professionals about productivity in small garden spaces and safe handling of garden produce.

A networking group of the Sustainable Farming Association, the Twin Cities Growers Network aims to connect anyone who grows produce seriously and seeks education, networking and fellowship. Whether you grow for market, personal or community use, or to rediscover indigenous and ethnic roots, if you want to network with like-minded people in the metro, this group is for you.
