New Roots graduates receive bridge loans for EQIP high tunnels
The crepes served by Sevens Swans Creperie were the perfect food for the first Homegrown Happy Hour of the 2018 season.
Kate Bryan offered a savory option and two sweet options. The savory was the apropos Forest crepe which featured forest mushrooms, bacon, a parmesan-garlic cream sauce with spinach grown by New Roots farmers.
The sweet options included one with a lavender-lemon curd with berries and a cinnamon-sugar crepe.
Guests enjoyed a cold Boulevard beer (or water or juice box) with their ticket and toured the Food Forest, one of three Cultivate KC food-growing sites. Still early, the strawberries were only beginning to grow but many of the spring stars were rampant including the sorrel, rhubarb and walking onions.
With no seating at the site, located in Merriam, Kan., the weather and scenery made for a perfect early evening picnic.
Join us for our future Homegrown Happy Hours in 2018, which will include offerings from El Tenedor and Pita for Good.
