If you haven’t heard, Slow Food USA is planning a national service day for Sept. 17, 2011. The theme this year is “Meals Under $5” — the idea is that a healthy, sustainably-produced meal can be just as inexpensive as, if not cheaper than, a fast food meal. Here at SFOC, we will be working in the Jerome CommUnity Garden in Santa Ana with our friends from the Grain Project, and whipping up yet another delightful garden-provided meal. If you would like to participate, email for details and to RSVP.
If you’d like to make it a full weekend of service, or you can’t make it on Sept. 17, on Sept. 18 Slow Food volunteers are also requested at the “Can You Dig It” garden at Tustin Memorial Academy. This back-to-school work party will include preparing garden beds and garden repairs and maintenance in anticipation of another year of garden education for the lucky students. For more information and to RSVP, contact Joyce at .
We hope you can join us!
