The summer heat is promoting amazing plant growth in our growing spaces, and our “Tastes of Summer” programs are in full swing. I want to thank Co-op members for their donations, work shifts, volunteer time, and the myriad other ways that Co-op members support FOOD MOXIE.
Our programs are built on research, and put forward the notion that exposure to growing food, combined with scratch cooking and/or tasting unfamiliar produce in age-appropriate ways, has a lasting positive impact on healthy eating habits, especially for children. All our programs integrate seasonal gardening activities with scratch cooking healthy meals on a budget and tasting unfamiliar seasonal fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
You can continue to support our efforts by joining us for our Seed to Supper annual fundraiser on Thursday, Sept. 19 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Awbury Arboretum’s Agricultural Village. And don’t miss our 14th annual Urban Farm Bike Ride benefit on Saturday, Oct. 5. For more information on these events, check out our website: www.foodmoxie.org.
