Gleaning, Cooking and Preservation
This project is planned for National Food Day 2013. Last fall, Grow Food Amherst got started by inviting community members to glean (collect left-over vegetables from a local farm) to be shared with others and used in a cooking and preservation workshop.
The first two projects organized by Grow Food Amherst with the support of Sustaining Amherst were a gleaning activity followed by a cooking and preservation workshop as part of National Food Day celebration. The story may be found at the Transition Amherst Webpage.
