summer news

My productivity has been felled by a head cold this week, but I did manage to send out the Pot + Pantry summer newsletter to my email subscribers yesterday (yea!). In case you missed it, here’s the most exciting tidbit:

MARK YOUR CALENDARS

FARMcurious Pop-Up Shop Kickoff Party

Sunday, July 24th 11 am – 2 pm

I’m happy to announce that Pot + Pantry will be hosting a pop-up shop for FARMcurious! The pop-up shop will run from Saturday, July 23rd, through Sunday, August 7th, and we’ll be having a big party at the shop on Sunday, July 24th, from 11am to 2pm to kick it off! (I must find more places to insert exclamation points to convey my excitement!!)

If you’re not familiar with FARMcurious, it’s the brainchild of Oakland-based urban farmer Nicole Kramer. FARMcurious’ mission is to educate, inspire and equip city dwellers interested in producing their own food seasonally and sustainably without having to completely abandon their urban lifestyles. In addition to offering urban homesteading classes and DIY food demonstrations, FARMcurious also provides products and kits to make your own cheese, yogurt, beer, vinegar, preserves…(you get the idea). Great stuff for people seeking to reconnect with their food.

As part of our kickoff party on July 24th, Nicole will demonstrate how to make your own cheese at home, and we’ll also have some awesome guests to help us celebrate.Sean Timberlake of Punk Domestics will teach you how to make cocktail infusions and Dandelion Chocolate will conduct tastings of their bean-to-bar chocolate. The Grilled Cheese Guy will also be there serving up sandwiches for hungry folks. And, of course, there will be a giveaway for attendees to win some awesome products!

We’ll have a more formal event schedule posted on the Pot + Pantry blog in the coming weeks, so check in for updates. Looking forward to seeing you guys at the party!
