Save the Date...

For our 3rd annual B-Patch Gardeners day, coinciding with World Kitchen Gardeners Day on Sunday August 26, 2012

More info is coming, here are a few words from the KGI World Kitchen Gardeners Day webpage:
"World Kitchen Garden Day is an annual, decentralized celebration of food produced on a human-scale. It is recognized each year on the 4th Sunday of August. It is an opportunity for people around the world to gather in their gardens with friends, family, and members of their local community to celebrate the multiple pleasures and benefits of home-grown, hand-made foods.
KGI initiated Kitchen Garden Day in 2003 as a healthy response to "Snack Food Month" organized by the International Snack Food Association each February. The thinking was that if the makers of potato chips, pretzels and fluorescent orange cheese doodles could spend 28 days and millions of dollars promoting their foods, the world's kitchen gardeners should be able to have at least a day for celebrating theirs.
  • To celebrate the positive role of organic kitchen gardening in society, health, and gastronomy
  • To raise awareness about the benefits of eating local and to encourage people to explore local food options in their areas
  • To build community spirit, at local and international levels, around the universal experiences of gardening, cooking, and eating"

Usually we have some garden demo's, and a big old potluck. So start thinking of your demo's, and planning what to bring. Of course this event is open to gardeners, their families and invited guests.
