- Orange County Food Council Forum, Thurs., March 23, 6-8 p.m
: Join the conversation and shape future decisions about food in orange county! The Orange County Food Council, nearing its one year anniversary, acts as a convener, bringing together the social and economic interests of the municipalities and the county around our local food system. The Council is hosting its next community forum on March 23, 6-8 p.m. at Binkley Baptist Church in Chapel Hill (a HarvestShare pick-up location!). The forum will bring together constituents from a broad range of groups invested in different aspects of the Orange County food system, including farming, economic development, food scarcity, healthy schools, and more. Together we will plan specific actions to address two places where these varied interests meet: food access gaps and the local food/farm economy.
 
- Leafy greens seed potatoes at this Saturday's community workday: This Sat.,  March 18. We'll plant the first round of garden spring greens, cut and plant seed potatoes, and more! Join us for the work and company any time this Saturday (March 11) from 9-1, and stay on for a potluck lunch at 1. Garden address: 3005 Lonesome Rd., Cedar Grove, NC, 27231.
Many thanks to an incredible group last week, including students from Warren Wilson College led by Anathoth "alum" Dakotah Kimbrough, who grew up in Cedar Grove. Thanks also to the volunteers from the Junior League of Durham and Orange Counties and Duke Divinity School. Along with fertilizing and mulching blueberries, and planting thousands of onions, the group even found time to weed the lush garlic bed!

A reminder: You can easily get updates about workday activities and see snapshots of life at the garden by "liking" Anathoth's Facebook page.

Peace,
Julia
