Do you know what a locavore is? It’s someone who eats food grown or produced locally. Our friends at Holly Hill Farm are celebrating our local bounty of goodness with a Locavore Pot Luck Dinner on Saturday, August 29th @ 5 at the farm. Following dinner the documentary Tableland will be shown outside of the Tomato Barn. What a cool dinner and a movie night!
We spoke with Holly Hill’s Educational Director, Jon Belber, last night about the many amazing programs The Friends of Holly Hill Farm run. Jon is teaching more than 14 area schools how to build and maintain gardens on school grounds. The Friends, a non-profit arm of Holly Hill, is dedicated to educating our local community, including our local children, all about sustainability and the benefits to our health, and to the environments health, from growing and eating local, organic food.
The Friends of Holly Hill run many amazing programs – like a canning workshop, also this weekend – so check out their website for more information. And you can purchase their organic food at 236 Jerusalem Road, where the farm is located, and also at the Cohasset Farmers Market, every Thursday from 2:30 – 6:30.
Drop into Holly Hill and say hi to Jon and the rest of the crew at Holly Hill!
