This weekend I’ll be all over the island of Brooklyn and Long (did you know that Brooklyn –and Queens – is technically on Long Island and that Brooklyn used to be the capital city of Long Island?) for the Long Island Small Farm Summit and Escapemaker.com’s 2nd Local Food and Travel Expo.
Advanced registration is still available, and walk-ins are welcome.
The day-long event, which attracted over 1,000 attendees last year, will be held at Hofstra University.
After my panel and a little schmoozing, I’ll be headed back to Brooklyn to check out what’s good in my boro and throughout the region for food, recreation, and travel at EscapeMaker.com’s Local Food and Travel Expo. Over 50 exhibitors will be on hand to share the best of what their town or county offers for your getaway needs.
What I love most about Escapemaker.com is that it highlights things you can do that’s accessible by car, bus, or train.
Tickets are $13, but you can save $3 with code EMHONEYB12 when you purchase your tickets online.
You can also attend this event for free by joining The New York Locavore Experience.
Good Food Fighter and Bed-Stuy’s Food Mayor the Food Culturist is at it again with her second Bed-Stuy Bar Crawl. The first crawl drew over 20 participants and made headlines across the blogosphere (who knew you could/want to imbibe in the Stuy? No one, apparently). Tickets are $15 and gets you drink specials, raffles, and more.
A couple of months ago I put a call out to my neighborhood to take over an abandoned lot and restore it to its previous community garden glory.
The tentatively named Putnam-Patchen garden will host a workday and meeting on Sunday from 11am on. Meeting is at 2.
Stop by the lot at the corner of Putnam and Patchen avenues in Bed-Stuy. Bring a beverage or snack to share, if you’d like.
Supporting small farmers, really small business owners, and good food for everyone, everywhere.
