In celebration of EARTH DAY this year, the Hopatcong Community Garden is hosting Gardenfest: An Afternoon of FamilyFun on April 22, 2012 from 12-4pm (rain date April 29, 2012) at Modick Park. Please see picture for details.
The Hopatcong Community Garden is completely funded by fundraisers, donations (like from Nutrition Map) and grants. Come support a great project that is bringing the gift of good health to Hopatcong, NJ.
Nutrition Map will have a vendor table in support of the garden. Come by to learn how to use up all those fresh goodies from the garden.
Not only do I get paid (most of the time) to talk about food all day, but thanks to food models, I get to play with it too.
When I am really lucky, patients bring me some awesome treasures from their gardens or from their favorite restaurants. Last night a patient brought me pico de gallo which tastes awesome on, well, just about everything. Had some this morning over cream cheese (vegan, but feel free to use the dairy variety) on top of a slice of wheat bread.
