Sustainable CAPE Center for Agriculture and Preservation
Sustain your own community for in so doing, you sustain the world.
We want to invite everyone to join us in Orleans, MA for a Spring lecture by Eliot Coleman. He will speak on Organic Growing Year-Round and discuss simple, inexpensive ways to maximize our harvest in the New England climate.
Relevant for backyard gardeners and farmers both, Eliot’s lively presentation will be followed by a Farmers’ Tea featuring hot cider & a selection of teas. Both Eliot Coleman, as well as his wife Barbara Damrosch, will sign their award-winning books. Local food vendors will offer a variety of tastes of Cape Cod. Reservations are highly suggested and tickets are available for a suggested donation of $20, free for farmers, students, those on SNAP or WIC, and Seniors.
During the Farmers’ Tea, Barnstable County farmers will offer info & CSA sign-ups, children will show off their new school greenhouse and there will be materials available on farmers’ markets – including SNAP/WIC & Senior Doubling programs.
