The Brooklyn Food Conference is happening this Saturday and with 5000 people expected, there will be loads of opportunities to link up with people who are involved in urban gardens, cooking, food justice, sustainablity, composting politics and so much more. it’s at Brooklyn Tech High School just a stone’s throw from the garden; 9 am – 6 pm
Members of the Hospitality Garden club are doing two cooking demos using produce from the garden: Joslyn Taylor is making her Garden Sushi in room 6W18 from 10:45 -11:30am. It will be spicy. (as will the sushi) And as part of the Youth Summit, Joseph Gordon will be serving up chard, spinach and young collards on a bruschetta w/ goat cheese. As local as it gets. That’s in the 8th floor gym at 12:30.
There are still opportunites for City Tech students to get involved in this event by helping with set up or the info table Saturday, or harvesting and food prep on Friday. See the events page or email firstname.lastname@example.org for detals.
