The Green Table Project Greetings and Happy Summer Vibes to you all!!! Well its finally here Green Table Project will launch their cooking demos in conjunction with the Bedford Stuyvesant YMCA healthy series of demos and lectures. Tuesday, July 21st will be the first of 4 demos for the 2009 growing season in NY and Brooklyn. Our mission is to educated and share techniques and conversations about food in our neighborhood and how important eating seasonally and supporting locally can sustain our lives. We have formed a relationship with Bed-Stuy CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) whom will be donating vegetables and fruits for some of our demos. We will also visit some local gardens in Bedstuy meeting their gardeners and enjoy the beauty of their gardens. I have included the remaining series dates for July and August: Tuesday July 28th Tuesday August 18 Tuesday August 25th The cost of the demos are $5 (YMCA members) and $10 (non YMCA members). Its the best time of the year to enjoy the fruits and vegetables of the season. GTP will demo knife skills, techniques, easy recipes and discuss health benefits of eating local in your neighborhood and seasonally. Thanks everyone and hope to see you this summer!
