Schedule of events leading up to the Hundred Mile Thanksgiving!

The Thanksgiving Committee is very excited to announce our schedule of events leading up to the big day! We’re organizing these trips to spark interest in local food systems and showcase the many options to eat locally that we’re lucky to have here in the Charlottesville/Albemarle region (plus, lets be honest, who doesn’t want to sample delicious apples and cider, etc.?) Of course we’ll be collecting ingredients along the way for the recipes we’re putting together for Thanksgiving. We hope that you’ll join us for any/all of the events that pique your interest….

*Saturday, October 10th – canning and fermenting workshop (St. Paul’s Church on the corner; 1pm – 3:30pm)

*Saturday, October 24th – trip to Wade’s Mill (flour) and Rockbridge Vineyards in Raphine, VA

Friday November 20th – HUNDRED MILE THANKSGIVING DINNER @ St. Paul’s Church, Charlottesville

*Spots in carpools should be available on a limited basis for each of the above events, so don’t let a lack of transportation stop you from coming with us…

We will continue to post to this blog if any of the above information changes, so be sure to check back frequently. Also, be thinking about those recipes….if you have a good one and want collaboration and/or help with finding local ingredients for it please share it here as well! Lastly, if you know of any awesome local food vendors feel free to give them a shout out on the blog….it’s always good to get the word out about awesome farmers and foodies in our local Charlottesville community.  Happy (local) eating!
