The 2014 Spring General Membership Meeting was held May 18 at the Chestnut Hill Friends Meetinghouse. Farm Manager Nina Berryman used a PowerPoint presentation to show how the farms address the Ends that govern everything we do at Weavers Way. Weavers Way Community Programs Executive Director Jill Fink described the new WWCP strategic plan.

Our annual celebration of all things PET was Saturday, May 31. The weather was great — it just rained cats and dogs and chickens and even a horse!

Did you know Weavers Way's own PhillyFresh Pickles are the most amazing pickle in the world? Clearly, we're not biased here. PhillyFresh Pickles began as a small Philadelphia business supported by The Food Trust and the Untours Foundation. We produce this popular pickle using local cucumbers, when possible, and local processing. Proceeds from the sale of PhillyFresh Pickles will help fund the Untours Foundation's social investment programs.

Is it a fruit or a vegetable? Let's slice it down the middle and go with frechtable (This is actual taxonomic terminology here. We don't make stuff like this up.) Plantains are a staple food in the tropical regions of the world, and frankly we Philadelphians should really give this fretchtable some justice. Plantains are treated in much the same way as potatoes and with a similar neutral flavour and texture when the unripe fruit is cooked by steaming, boiling or frying.
