Why Local?: A Market Workshop!

Local… a word that gets bandied about quite a bit these days. Local this, local that. Dekalb Farm takes it serious. We are serious about helping our community and neighbors eat healthy, buy smart and grow for themselves. ‘Why Local?’ will kick off our summer workshop series by answering this question—once and for all. Come Monday (August 8th) evening at 6pm for a fun and informative workshop, then stay for dinner! We will be making a delicious summer salad and a fresh pesto with produce from our farm. Yum! This workshop is for young and old alike, so bring the whole family.

The workshop will be hosted by Dekalb farmer Lynn Loflin of the Newton Farm Collective, a group of Catskill farmers who also live, grow and educate in Brooklyn. They are stewards of a plot at the Dekalb Farm and will be collaborating on workshops, cooking events and other projects throughout the summer. So, stop by and check us out!
