Meal-in-the-Field Events in North Naples
Dec 02, 2014 05:15PM
The next editions of the free, monthly Meal-in-the-Field series will take place at 6 p.m., December 6 and January 17, 2015, on the grounds of the Cornerstone United Methodist Church, in North Naples. These events offer experienced and aspiring gardeners the opportunity to meet and learn from experts, share experiences and see and taste exotic and authentically grown tropical fruits, herbs and vegetables.
The sessions will be led by David and Jan-Marie Etzel, of the cooperative small farm Cornerstone Edibles, a quarter-acre plot that includes 12 raised beds, herbal coils, many native plants, an orchard and a new nursery.
Attendees are asked to bring a covered meal, recipes, questions and drums or other instruments to the events, which help build the gardening community on the local level around locally grown food. Informal music will be played after the meal.
