Past + Upcoming Events!
Just like Zannah said in one of her last posts. You think the season is winding down but it surely is not! There is so much going on at Powisset!
Last weekend, we not only held our 4th Friday Farm Dinner but we also hosted Rentao Poliafito, owner and founder of Baked in NYC (and Tokyo). With Renato's guidance, we made 3 amazing seasonal desserts: pumpkin whoopie pies, an apple buckle and carrot cake cupcakes. I am still dreaming of those whoopie pies. We were happy to also be joined by Trustees President & CEO, Barbara Erickson. I think she looks she's having fun. Don't you agree?
You may have seen one of the banners or signs hanging up at or around Powisset advertising the Powisset Cafe! Well, it starts next Saturday (Oct. 15th) and is being held on the following 2 Saturday (Oct. 22 & 29th). We will be serving up coffee, tea, muffins, flatbread, quiche, soup and bread between 11-2pm right in the Powisset Kitchen & Classroom. Come check it out! If you are interested in helping out with the cafe, please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Several upcoming events I would like to highlight include:
- Sukkot Festival on the Farm organized by Ganei Beantown: Sunday, Oct. 16th. There will be lots of different activities including sukkah building, a beekeeping demo, kale salad making in the kitchen with Nicole Lewis, bike your way to cider with the cider press, ferment some veggies, and much more!
- The 4th Powisset Farm Trail Run: Sunday, Oct 23rd. Choose among 3 distances. Not interested in running? You will also have the opportunity paint a pumpkin painting or go on a farm tour. Race prizes include fresh veggies from the farm and other local goodies.
- Our Final Friday Farm Dinner is on Oct. 28th. Aeronaut Brewing Company will be joining us and they have concocted a special brew using Powisset pumpkins! We will also have The Railroad House Band providing their amazing music.
Hope to see you on the farm!
