“Seed to Feed” Celebrates Bastille Day with Mark Haskell

This is a repost of a blog entry I made with ECO City Farms on July 19, 2011:



On July 14th, the ‘Seed to Feed’ celebrated Bastille Day with some hard work on the farm and a hardy meal prepared under the tutelage of chef/gardener Marc Haskell. The Portstown students continued to reinforce the grounds on the farm by spreading wood chips to deter encroaching weeds from the plant beds. Meanwhile, a few of the students shifted through the soil mix in preparing a new vermicompost bin.

Afterwards Marc Haskell gave a short history lesson on the significance of Bastille Day before leading the students through his last culinary workshop with the program. The menu included deviled eggs, cheese quesadilla, salad, hummus, and ratatouille.
