Slow Food Seacoast Crop Mob

All come out for a Crop Mob! Join Slow Food Seacoast at Meadow’s Mirth in helping to glean the fields of the last of the season’s harvest:

Calling all volunteer farmers! Sunday, October 23rd, from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. we’ll be harvesting a crop at the beautiful and certified organic Meadow’s Mirth Farm, located at 61A Stratham Heights Road in Stratham, NH.  This farm is just a few miles up the road from Portsmouth Ave., also known as Rte. 108.

Depending on the weather, we’ll be harvesting beans, potatoes, turnips, beets, or carrots. Most of what we harvest will go to the farmers, Josh and Jean Jennings, but they also will generously donate a portion of what we pick to a local food bank.  In addition, we’ll get to take home some of our work for our personal use! John Forti, Curator of Historic Landscapes at Strawbery Banke and heirloom fruit and vegetable expert extraordinaire, will be there to teach us about heirloom seed saving.

Please RSVP to Amy Pollard, Slow Food Seacoast Outreach Coordinator at healthybalance9@comcast.net as this activity is weather dependent and we would like to inform participants if plans change.
