Pot au Feu demo by Mathieu & Alyssa Palombino

One fine September evening, Brooklyn Kitchen Labs opened their doors to our members, Alyssa & Mathieu Palambino, so that they could teach us Southsiders how to make the French classic, Pot au Feu.

Field trip to Greig Farm. Sept 26, 2010

pick-your-own raspberries @ Greig Farm

At the tail end of the raspberry season, a bunch of us piled into cars and drove north to check out where our berries comes from. Greig Farm is located in Red Hook, NY, which is part of Duchess County, just East of the Hudson River. We had about 4 cars full of members making the trek from Brooklyn through the gorgeous fall foliage of the Hudson Valley to see the land, pick raspberries & apples & pumpkins, and to hear more about Greig Farm.

Dance Party Fundraiser. Thurs Nov 4th @ the Woods

Instead of filling up the Woods with produce, on Nov 4th, we will fill it up with dancing bodies!

As harvest season begins to draw to a close and our share pickups become numbered, it’s time to come together and celebrate another wonderful year of great local food, direct connection with farmers and the wonderful community we’ve become.

Our fantastic hosts at the Woods have graciously given their space to us on Thursday, November 4th– letting us have an end-of-year fundraiser at the Woods and donating a percent of the bar to us to help us continue to support some very important neighborhood food security projects. Specifically, the $$ earned on this night will go directly to purchasing Winter Shares for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen & Egg shares for the Southside Mission Pantry. The more money we make, the more shares we can purchase, and the more hungry people from the neighborhood we can feed…

CSA members Phil Andrews and Rebecca Heinegg will be bringing their dance-ragtime band Apocalypse Five and Dime and the Woods will supply DJs for us to dance our hearts out.

CSA Bake Sale!

In addition, we’ll be hosting a tasting table of treats made from CSA produce.

Don’t forget to invite all your housemates who have eaten from the CSA bounty and your friends who have cooked for and anyone else you know who likes good food, music and dancing. The better the bar does, the better we do!

4th Annual Craig Murphey Memorial Fundraiser – 10/16

On October 16, 2010 Craig’s friends and family will gather at a location to be announced for a party commemorating Craig’s life, and to celebrate the joy he brought to everyone who knew him. Craig was known by most for his roaring laugh, contagious smile and outrageous dancing that kept us all entertained. A hummus cookoff, live music, and the yearly raffling off of prizes provided by the community will take place throughout the night. Craig Murphey was a young community organizer and anti-poverty advocate whose life was cut short in a tragic bike accident in 2007. Continue reading
