Soil, Hands, and Heart: A Year of Very Local Eating

PRESENTED BY: Woodinville Meaningful Movies
7:00 PM, Friday, February 9, 2018 PST
Location: Woodinville, WA (click for map)

Woodinville residents Alexia and Daniel spent all of 2017 eating only foods gathered by hand. If they wanted salt, they went to the ocean. If they wanted maple syrup, they tapped the trees along their street. They transformed their suburban lawn into a bountiful garden called Hawthorn Farm. Animals, from rabbits to chickens to a cow, joined the party. Human helpers came to milk the goats and weed the onion patch, and also brought exotic gifts like hand-harvested macadamia nuts and lemons. But could they all pull off a hand-harvested wedding feast for eighty people? Hear their stories live and in person (and find out what they have been eating in 2018). Their presentation documents the long road to resilient deliciousness, right here in your neighborhood. What’s their next challenge—and yours?

    Would love to see this, but it’s an hour’s drive from So Kng Co. If my car were full, it might be worth it! : )

      Thanks for your interest Nancy; the presentation was delightful and inspiring. Perhaps at some future time the couple will be invited and would be willing to accept an invitation to present their slide show in South King County.
