Hard to believe we are into August already, the summer is flying by! The biggest news this past month was the wonderful Farm to Table dinner that the Greater Olympia Slow Food group had at the farm in July. Absolutely amazing again! The food and company were fantastic, and the random light showers added a coziness to the event.
Wonderful and creative appetizers were followed by a tour of the farm lead by Jan. The tour included the history of the farm as well as visits to the animals, a lesson in composting and raspberry sampling.
After the tour we enjoyed amazing food which led to full bellies and happy faces.
These events are of course fun for us, but serve to raise funds for the Slow Food Group to do other things in the community. There is a community ice cream social and pizza bake coming up, and many opportunities to help educate the community about local foods. You can get more information about their events on their website, or at their info booth (with food sampling) at the Olympia Farmers Market.
Many thanks again to all that helped make this a wonderful event!
