Grow It, Cook It, Eat It!

So there has been a lot of chatter about growing some of our own food (a first for me) at the new homestead. Figured we better learn from the best. We’ll be attending the “Grow It, Cook It, Eat It” event this Sunday at Bartram’s Garden in Philadelphia. I heard about this through our friends at the Philadelphia Orchard Project – an amazing local effort to plant orchards in the city of Philadelphia that grow healthy food, green spaces and community food security. Philly Homegrown is another great resource for foodie events in the region and they are also kind of enough to support Not My Mother’s Kitchen.
 
Here is a list of some upcoming local events: http://food.visitphilly.com/homegrown-guide-to-upcoming-foodie-events/
 
Below are the specifics on “Grow It, Cook It, Eat It.” Maybe we will see you there!
 
Philadelphia Science Festival – Grow It, Cook It, Eat It
Bartram’s Garden
Sunday, April 22nd; Noon – 3PM

Join Fair Food, Penn Urban Nutrition Initiative, The Food Trust, The Restaurant School, Urban Scavengers, PA Horticultural Society and The Franklin Institute as you explore the path your food takes from garden to table. Stations throughout Bartram’s Garden will pair a horticultural expert with a chef to demonstrate how to grow and cook a variety of homegrown vegetables. Part of the Franklin Institute’s Philadelphia Science Festival, this event will help explain the science behind growing and cooking your own food. Tickets will go on sale soon, again, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
 
P.S. – This is my 100th Post at Not My Mother’s Kitchen. A miracle indeed.
