Earth Day was also the Slow Food First Coast Tour de Farm where all the local farms open their doors for samples, tours and lots of fun. I, of course, was at KYVFarm all day!
There were fresh eggs and lots of veggies for sale at the market. From noon through the rest of the day people were lining up.
Slow food First Coast organized four volunteers to help with veggie prep, traffic and questions. Heather has also been a KYV CSA member since the very beginning!
I arrived at 10AM and started working on the veggies along with other friends and neighbors.
Shannon and Vivian worked the tables all day!
Minorcan Datil Pepper products were up for sale.
Pie in the Sky was selling fresh pies.
Veronica, also my photographer for the day, scored a coconut cream pie.
Chefs Genie and Jeff from the Floridian made a creamy rutabaga salad, kohlrabi slaw and marinated green beans.
Chef David Scalisse from Sawgrass made a lemony bean salad.
My photojournalist and her sister Viviana.
The children loved getting involved.
The animals got lots of love.
Francisco’s hard work has really paid off. Many thanks for all the work that you and Vivian do to provide healthy and delicious food for our families!
And thanks to Veronica for being my most excellent photographer.
