This Saturday is our monthly free homegrown fruit, vegetable, and flower exchange in front of the Coronado Public Library. Bring a bag of your garden's surplus between 9 and 10am, and return at 11 am to pick up your bag filled with an assortment of the best of Coronado's gardens and kitchens. If you dont have a crop this month, feel free to bring cuttings, something you cooked, extra flower pots...whatever you want to share.
At 11:00 in the Winn Room of the Library, we will have a real treat in meeting Riley Davenport who will introduce us to EDIBLE SAN DIEGO, a beautiful magazine which covers all things agricultural, culinary, organic and sustainable in San Diego County.
In the words of Ms. Davenport, who edits the quarterly, "The Edible San Diego aim is to help San Diegans connect the dots between their eating choices and the complex effects those choices have on their health, the health of their community, and the health of the planet. We want to help transform the way consumers think about, shop for, cook, eat and relate to food in general and local food in particular by reconnecting them with local growers, retailers, chefs and food artisans. We hope that this more personal connection will help all to thrive in a mutually beneficial, healthful and economically robust way."
Riley’s program will be an interactive presentation, with questions and answers, about the local San Diego agricultural and culinary world. Copies of the magazine will be given out free as well. Don’t miss this one...you will learn all about what’s happening here in San Diego. The purveyors highlighted by Riley in the most recent edition of the magazine run the gamut from beekeepers, to locally sourced markets, to a company which bakes cupcakes with local beer brews as their special ingredient.
