Over 100 people attended the Soup Night that Sierra Harvest hosted on October 3rd at the Nevada City Veteran’s Hall to celebrate and introduce the community to our new organizational structure. Bringing the community together over a delicious meal is enjoyable at any time of the year, but the bounty of early Fall vegetables from our local farms made this occasion a special treat.
If you missed the Soup Night, there are lots of other opportunities this month to join us in celebrating fresh, local, seasonal food, including the Harvest potluck at the Food Love project on Oct 15th at 5:30PM, the Food Love U-pick, which happens every Tuesday through October from 4:30-6:30PM, school field trips and produce stand sales, Tasting Week (October 21-25), and Sierra Harvest’s first community-based Program Advisory Committee meeting on November 3rd. More details coming via this newsletter or on our website at www.sierraharvest.org. We are also still looking for volunteers with skills or interest in the following areas:
